A well-managed and operational Conservation Gateway is in our future! Marketing, Conservation, and Science have partnered on a plan to rebuild the Gateway into the organization’s enterprise content management system (AEM), with a planned launch of a minimal viable product in late 2024.

The Nature Conservancy in West Virginia recognizes that clean water is an essential benefit of nature, and is working to protect and restore the state’s aquatic resources, by working with various partners to implement on-the-ground projects, and by conducting scientific analyses to evaluate the current quality of the resources and identify priorities across the landscape.

We are actively supporting efforts of the Ohio River Basin Fish Habitat Partnership to protect, restore and enhance priority habitat for fish and mussels in the Ohio River and are assisting in the development of information and tools for assessing environmental stream flow needs in the Potomac River basin. We have also partnered with the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) and the EPA to conduct a pilot project of HUC8 watershed assessments across the state, intended to assess both current quality and potential future threats for streams, wetlands and uplands landscapes within each watershed.
