Welcome to the Cacapon & Lost Rivers Land Trust, a Nationally Accredited Land Trust

We are pleased to announce Ethan Strickler as our new
Executive Director.

Ethan’s attraction to the Cacapon and Lost River watershed was a powerful motivation in attracting him to the job of Executive Director.

“In visiting the watershed in the past, I’ve been so impressed with the beauty of the land and the river and with the genuine kindness of the people. I’m honored to have been selected for this job. My wife and I are looking forward to becoming part of the community!”



We assist landowners and communities in the Cacapon and Lost Rivers Watershed with maintaining healthy rivers, protecting forests and farmland, and preserving rural heritage for the enjoyment and well being of present and future generations.

With your support, this corner of West Virginia will continue to be a special place to live, work, and visit.
