LWCF helps WV wildlife

It’s not all parks, pools, and playgrounds. The Land and Water Conservation Fund is also a critical source of revenue for the Division of Natural Resources to provide West Virginians with high quality access to hunting and fishing and to conserve habitat for wildlife. One of the more unique LWCF projects in West Virginia supported the DNR’s French Creek Wildlife Center, where visitors can learn all about the animals that call the Mountain State home. Popular exhibits include the eastern cougar (“officially” extinct in West Virginia) and French Creek Freddie, our own meteorologically gifted groundhog.
