The Foundation’s mission is to maintain, conserve, protect and enhance the Forks of Coal State Natural Area by providing leadership in communication, funding, advocacy and conservation education for children and the community. This includes helping to raise the funds to build the new Claudia L. Workman Wildlife Education Center, which is already in the planning and design stages.
Trails, signage and outdoor exhibits are planned to enhance the outdoor experience for the Area. Flora, fauna, geologic and Coal River history exhibits, an outdoor classroom, stream restoration and much more are being developed. Educational events will be scheduled throughout the year.
