Cacapon Institute

Cacapon Institute was founded to protect the Cacapon River and Appalachian watersheds.

Since then, the Institute has grown to reach a broad audience across the Mid-Atlantic.

“Today, we are pursuing real-world conservation project in the Potomac Highlands of West Virginia, Western Maryland, and the Shenandoah Valley. From the Cacapon to the Potomac to the Chesapeake Bay,
we protect rivers and watersheds using science and education.”
