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...
Once slated for development, White Horse Mountain’s 1,700 acres of forest, streams, and habitat are protected forever - and now they’re open to the public! Potomac Conservancy gifted the 1,700-acre forest to the state of West Virginia.
The new public recreation area is now open for hiking, bird-watching, and other light recreation.

safe for swimming and fishing by 2025!
