Funding grants to preserve hundreds of W.Va. acres  

Credit:  Associated Press | February 20, 2013 | www.wvva.com ~~

The West Virginia Outdoor Heritage Conservation Fund has approved grant funding for three projects protecting 566 acres of farm and forestland.

The funding total is just under $600,000. About two-thirds of that sum is going to the Pendleton County Farmland Protection Board to purchase a conservation easement on a 210-acre farm. The funding will help preserve caves that contain an imperiled crustacean.

The Greenbrier County Farmland Protection Board is receiving $138,275 to purchase an easement on a 95-acre farm adjacent to a stream threatened by commercial logging and a wind farm development.

Finally, $89,000 is going to the National Committee for the New River. It will be used to purchase an easement for land overlooking the Greenbrier River.
