Explore WV Public Lands Through Our LWCF Story Map
The Land and Water Conservation Fund has supported almost 500 projects in West Virginia since it was established in 1964. This critical source of funding for our public lands is about to expire at the end of the fiscal year on September 30. To share what LWCF has done for the Mountain State, WV Rivers has created a map-based photo tour of 40 selected projects. Maybe you’ll find that a park near you – or one of your favorite ‘wild and wonderful’ public lands – has been helped by the Land and Water Conservation Fund. In turn, these special places – and the funding that supports them – need you to tell Congress to renew LWCF before it’s too late!
