The show airing October 28, 2019 –  November 4, 2019 highlights the WV Land Trust & the 3rd Annual Salute to Veterans event.

We interviewed Jessica Spatafore, Director of Development & Communications with the WV Land Trust. She talked about their 25-year history and their mission. They are a statewide nonprofit dedicated to protecting West Virginia’s natural lands, scenic areas, water quality, and recreational access forever. Since 1995, the organization has permanently protected more than 9,000 acres of land statewide.

They protect land with significant conservation values through the use of conservation easements and real estate acquisitions, and by working with a statewide network of partners to build a passionate land conservation movement in the state. The WV Land Trust is proud to partner with people who want to protect and perpetuate that legacy and identity. The organization seeks projects with meaningful and lasting benefits that reflect the needs of West Virginia, such as protecting drinking water sources, creating recreational opportunities, conserving wildlife habitat, promoting local food production, preserving historic and cultural sites, engaging youth and community groups, and supporting scientific research.

She discussed the details of their upcoming 25th Anniversary Special Places Celebration scheduled for November 8, 2019 beginning at 6:00 p.m. at the Clay Center in Charleston, WV.
