As part of their “Finding Peace in Nature” series, our friends at West Virginia Rivers recently highlighted Cool Spring Preserve.
Tanner Haid – WV River’s Eastern Panhandle Field Coordinator – writes about his family’s experience visiting Cool Spring, and how placing the preserve under a conservation easement is one step toward ensuring safe drinking water in WV’s Eastern Panhandle. You can read Tanner’s piece at this link, where you’ll also find Linda Case’s “Landowner Legacy” video.
Linda Case was the founder of Craftworks, the organization that donated Cool Spring Preserve to PVAS. In Spring of 2020, Linda Case helped expand the preserve by donating an additional 50 acres of her own land! Linda’s adjacent property – and all 63 acres of Cool Spring – are now under a conservation easement managed by the West Virginia Land Trust.
PVAS is so grateful to all of the individuals and organizations working to conserve our corner of the world!
