About Us

The Coopers Rock Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation founded in 1989. The foundation’s dual mission is to promote preservation and recreation in Coopers Rock State Forest and nearby Snake Hill Wildlife Management Area. The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors whose members come from the Morgantown and Fairmont, West Virginia area. Foundation members are active forest users and care about the future of the forest, and help ensure Coopers Rock will remain one of the finest places for outdoor recreation in a region that encompasses Northern West Virginia, Western Maryland, and Southern Pennsylvania.
