Preserving, protecting, and promoting the Cacapon River and its watershed by engaging and educating the community
The Friends of the Cacapon River, or FCR, began in the 1970s as one of the earliest watershed associations in West Virginia. Since then, we have worked diligently to safeguard the environmental health of the Cacapon River and its watershed—focusing on the lower stretches that run through Morgan and Hampshire Counties to the mouth of the river, where it flows into the Potomac River before entering the Chesapeake Bay.
Today, FCR is an award-winning, nonprofit watershed organization composed of loyal benefactors, members, and volunteers who are dedicated to ensuring the Cacapon River remains one of West Virginia’s highest-quality streams. In the years to come, we will continue to advocate for conservation and stewardship of this beautiful river so that future generations will inherit a healthy, clean watershed.
