ACP Partners with the WV Scenic Trails Association
While making the ACP a reality, we’ve partnered with numerous conservation groups across the region to protect wildlife habitats, expand land conservation and preserve scenic hiking trails. A great example is our partnership with the West Virginia Scenic Trails Association (WVSTA) in support of the Allegheny Trail, which stretches nearly 330 miles across West Virginia.
In working with WVSTA, the ACP team was able to find a solution that actually improved the overall Allegheny Trail system in addition to protecting streams and wildlife.
We also donated 1,200 acres to connect the Monongahela National Forest with the Seneca State Forest, helping to sustain precious habitats for forest wildlife. Read more here.
