Virginia Outdoors Plan (


The Virginia Outdoors Plan (VOP) fulfills the state’s obligation to the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) Act administered by the National Park Service. It is the state’s official conservation and outdoor recreation plan (SCORP) for all levels of government, and other recreation interests across the state. The contents of the VOP help guide funding prioritization and distribution in outdoor recreation planning. Successful VOP publication every five years provides the Commonwealth access to significant LWCF funding for outdoor public recreation across the state, including for local and regional parks.

This drafted 2024 Virginia Outdoors Plan – Recreation For All  (VOP 2024-2029) must be reviewed and approved by the National Park Service (NPS) to ensure it meets all the LWCF requirements for a Statewide Conservation and Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP). This 30-day public comment period is part of the NPS review process.
