Make sure to pick up a copy of Around the Panhandle magazine – great article about Cacapon Institute’s work “Protecting Our Water, One Drop at a Time” by Bonnie Williamson.
“This past summer, the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, along with most of the Eastern Seaboard, experienced unprecedented amounts of rainfall. According to the National Weather Service, the region had 20 inches of rain more than it normally does. Though most may believe rain, in reasonable amounts, may be a blessing, what happens when it comes to stormwater runoff, the result of that rain, can be disastrous for rivers and streams. The Cacapon Institute has been dedicated to protecting watersheds and rivers by using science and education for more than 30 years.”
