Partners celebrate 1 million feet of conservation fence in West Virginia

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Trout Unlimited, working in partnership with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and Farm Service Agency, West Virginia Conservation Agency, Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge, numerous non-governmental organizations and many landowners, have installed more than 1 million feet of conservation fence throughout the state of West Virginia. Conservation fencing projects provide a “win-win” for farmers, wildlife, and agencies across the landscape. Livestock exclusion fencing is a conservation tool that helps to keep nutrients on the farm and reduces nutrient input into streams and upland forest throughout the watershed.
