    THE PEC engages in unethical conduct that conflicts with their 501(c)3 status.

    The PEC also owns acreage above OVOKA in Paris that they acquired to “preserve” using government grants and tax dollars but instead use this land for PEC family and friends personal private use and gatherings. Chris Miller and Heather Richards are often seen hunting, camping, making noise , having parties and using this property for the private personal gains of the PEC. DISGUSTING.

    PEC is a radical extremist enviro-group that is destroying Virginia.

    Go away PEC and never return. Leave us alone.
