Thank you to everyone who attended our holiday reception on December 14th! It was a great evening, with live music and lots of fun. The Buxton and Landstreet Gallery was a festive venue, and we would like to thank the Vandalia Heritage Foundation for partnering with us on this event.
We also had the chance to present Ashton Berdine of the West Virginia Land Trust with an award for his work on purchasing the Yellow Creek Preserve. Friends of Blackwater has been a long-time advocate of this purchase, which will protect beloved recreation areas like Moon Rocks in Tucker County. We have stayed engaged with this project behind this scenes, and were excited to see the Land Trust’s hard work paying off.
