State Gets Money For Recreation Areas

West Virginia is sharing part of more than $43 million in federal funds to help states with parks, outdoor recreation and conservation projects. The U.S. Department of Interior said West Virginia is getting more than $463,000 from the Land and Water Conservation Fund to go for things like baseball fields and community green spaces. It also allows states and local governments provide public access to rivers, lakes and other water resources, expand the interpretation of historic and cultural sites, and conserve natural landscapes for public outdoor recreation.
