The Dragon wilderness is a unique ecosystem which has been ranked second in ecological significance among 232 areas investigated in a Smithsonian Institution study which covered 12,600 square miles of the Chesapeake Bay region. The unique character of the Dragon wilderness and its awesome natural beauty exist primarily because it is remote.
Friends of Dragon Run was organized, in 1985, by a group of Virginia’s Middle Peninsula citizens who generously donated funds to purchase and preserve a 203 acre tract of Dragon swampland, near Churchview in Middlesex County. Friends of Dragon Run seeks to promote preservation and protection of the Dragon Run watershed.
