  • Public Tour at Coopers Rock State Forest

    August 16, 2014 — Coopers Rock State Park, Preston

    West Virginia Division of Forestry officials will conduct a public tour at 11 a.m. at Coopers Rock State Forest Saturday, Aug. 16, 2014. This is an informational tour for the public to learn about plans for a proposed timber management project prescribed to meet recreational, wildlife and silvicultural objectives. Silviculture is the science of controlling the establishment, growth, composition, health and quality of forests and woodlands. This tour is the opportunity for the public to learn about the project in order to provide written input.

    Project plans include constructing a designated parking area along the Pisgah Road and developing a 2.4 mile road/trail loop. Wildlife objectives include increasing young forest habitat, mast production and browse, while creating savannas and varying habitats for different bird species, such as turkey, grouse and songbirds like the golden-winged warbler.

    The project area is located within the main body of Coopers Rock State Forest, south of Interstate 68, east of the Scott Run trail and west of the Pisgah Road (Preston County Route 73/2).

    Those attending should meet at the Day Use Parking Area, located along the Main Forest Road, near the entrance gate. Bring substantial footwear, clothing appropriate for the weather, snacks and water. The tour will involve about a 2-mile hike on uneven ground in the woods with no trails. The tour route will require climbing up some moderate grades and crossing a stream.

    For more information about the tour or to register for it, contact Barbara Breshock at the Beckley office at 304-256-6775, by cellphone 304-932-7105 or via email, If you are planning to attend, please notify Breshock by noon Thursday, Aug. 14, so enough transportation will be available.

  • Civil War mural dedication

    March 29, 2015 — Marlinton, Pocahontas

    On Palm Sunday 1865, Lee and Grant met at Appomattox, marking the end of the Civil War. This Palm Sunday, 150 years later, will mark the dedication of a mural commemorating the lives of civilians in the Pocahontas County area during that war. The mural, by local artist Molly Must, is on the Motor Parts building, just a block east of the McClintic Library on Route 39 in Marlinton. The event will take place at 2 p.m. In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved to the Pocahontas County Opera House, just a couple of blocks away.

    Speakers will include the artist; Kay Goodwin, WV Secretary of Education and the Arts and Chair of the WV Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission; Paul Quigley, James L Robertson Jr. Professor in Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech; and County Commission President Bill Beard. Rob Taggart will provide Civil War music, and Jason Bauserman will portray Elder John Kline, a prominent Brethren minister of the period.

    Funding for the mural was provided by The West Virginia Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission, the Pocahontas County Commission, and the Pocahontas County CVB. Floyd Davis, Jr. offered the wall of his business as a home for the mural. The Civil War mural project was sponsored by the Pocahontas County Free Libraries, which also sponsored Molly Must’s “Last Forest” mural on First Avenue in Marlinton.
