Only 100 Acres Of The Rare Marshland At This West Virginia Preserve Exist In The World

Where do you venture when you want to enjoy West Virginia’s lush meadows, towering forests, and a rippling stream? The same place you go to find a rare plant, animal, or bird. Incidentally, this is also where you can find someone eager to help you learn more about West Virginia’s amazing nature scene AND where you can see some of the only Shenandoah Wet Prairie Marsh in the world: Cool Springs Preserve in Charles Town.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The preserve is open daily from dawn to dusk. To learn more and plan your own trip to Cool Spring Preserve, visit the Potomac Valley Audubon Society’s website here. And if you work up an appetite exploring the preserve, you can always stop for a meal at Mountain View Restaurant in Charles Town.
