The West Virginia Land Trust is pleased to announce that this year we will cross the 20,000-acre threshold of land protected! Thanks to support from many businesses and individuals who donate, sponsor, volunteer, and love the outdoors, we have created outdoor recreation access, ensured clean drinking water supplies, preserved working family farms, and protected open spaces, scenic views, historic sites, and more. This is something to celebrate! In 2022, we will be celebrating our special places all year long.
We hope you will join us for a hike in one of the special places you helped to create! Our yearlong Saturday Hiking Series includes:
April 9: Shavers Fork Preserve near Elkins (Randolph County)
May 14: Toms Run Preserve near Morgantown (Monongalia County)
July 16: Little Bluestone Community Forest near Hinton (Summers County)
August 20: Mammoth Preserve near Smithers (Kanawha County)
September 10: Camp Bartow near Bartow (Pocahontas County)
October 8: Potts Creek near Union (Monroe County)
November 12: Piney Creek Preserve near Beckley (Raleigh County)
We currently have 20 properties which are designated to be nature preserves and we are working hard to open them to the public. Access, parking, signage, and trail work are all underway. (So far, eight WVLT projects are already open for visitors.)
This event raises valuable dollars to support our important work! We encourage you to invest in our mission and join us for a hike!
