Babcock State Park Donations

As most of you know our beautiful State Parks can really use our help - done through donations to the WV State Park Foundation. These funds are tax deductible and go directly - and quickly - to the park to be used. I have been through this whole online process and it is easy. We are able to donate to the park of our choice whether you mail it in or do it online. If you donate online then at the end you click "Add special instructions to the seller" and specify Babcock. You will get an immediate email confirmation and a letter from the foundation next day. Please share and spread the word - Let us come together to help Babcock - Babcock is a very special place.... and right now we need to show that. Thank you all-- Happy Trails!
