The trees in the Pisgah section of Coopers Rock are getting some much needed love and attention this February! Thanks to Aurora Lights and all the area citizens who are stepping up and speaking out against the proposed timber project. About forty people of all ages gathered for the Hug Our Trees (HOT) day on Valentines Day up in the Pisgah section of the forest to show solidarity for these trees and this region of the forest that has been left untouched by commercial logging since 1936. Many believe that the best way to “manage” this section of the forest is to allow it to remain untouched.

To All Fans of Coopers Rock State Forest:
The Coopers Rock Foundation, working with the Superintendent of the state forest, has established the construction of new restrooms for the front gate (Day Use) parking area as our top fundraising priority in the coming year.
This year’s Rocky Habitat Restoration was a big success thanks to everyone who showed up for a day of work (and pizza). Special thanks to Greg Corio and WVU’s Adventure WV program for bringing a couple dozen volunteers (or more). Foundation trailwork coordinator Adam Polinski will give us more details on what was accomplished…and until then, enjoy this video of the day…
