Potomac Conservancy
1,725 acres protected

Potomac Conservancy used our funding to permanently protect the 1,725-acre White Horse Mountain, one of the largest remaining forest tracts in West Virginia. Overlooking the South Branch Potomac River, White Horse Mountain is a destination for hikers, hunters, anglers and mountain bikers. If you’re lucky, you might spot a Bald Eagle, bobcat or black bear while you’re there. Potomac Conservancy transferred the property to the West Virginia Department of Natural Resources to be managed as a Wildlife Management Area with full public recreation access.
