14,000 acres and counting … we’re the largest local land trust in West Virginia.
Landowners: Funding is available for land management & enhancement!
The Trust partners with Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) & Trout Unlimited to enhance streams and soils in the Cacapon watershed. Owners of farmland or non-industrial forest are eligible for financial assistance for land management and enhancement projects through the EQIP program.
For more than 30 years, dozens of landowners have trusted us to preserve their land.
Cacapon and Lost Rivers watershed is home to 45 rare and endangered species.
Brook trout, Appalachia’s only native trout, thrive in some of the Cacapon River watershed’s smaller streams.
