Cacapon River Along Route 9 2 Largent Wv Ed Neville 2001

West Virginia

Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains, eastern West Virginia is known for its striking scenery, renowned fishing and hunting, and world-class canoeing and kayaking along the 125-mile Cacapon and Lost River, a major tributary of the Potomac River.

Our work in West Virginia helped protect land next to Cacapon State Park used for hunting and sustainable forestry.

Since 2013, we’ve conserved 4,672 acres, and made grants and loans totaling $270,000, which have helped the state’s conservation groups and agencies protect an additional 1,269 acres.
