The Potomac Is Making a Comeback!
In our 10th edition of the State of the Nation's River report, the Potomac River has earned its highest grade ever!
The river's roaring back to life,
but there's trouble on the horizon...
White Horse Mountain is Officially Public!
Once slated for development, White Horse Mountain is now the region’s newest public land! Potomac Conservancy transferred the 1,700-acre forest to the state of West Virginia and permanently protected its forest, streams, and habitat.
The new public recreation area will open this fall for hiking, bird-watching, and other activities allowed within the site’s wildlife and conservation goals.
