The West Virginia Outdoor Heritage Conservation Fund protects lands that host the state’s wild and wonderful natural resources. This work is guided by an 11-member Board of Trustees, drawn from land trusts; the Division of Forestry; the Division of Natural Resources; outdoor recreation and sportsmen’s groups; and the professions of biology, ecology, forestry, and public health.
Its land-protection projects could include vital habitats for wildlife, working forests, farmlands, fishing, hunting, and outdoor recreation areas.
