Local officers for both school organizations are also installed during the luncheon by Serena Dupuy and Josh Higdon, state officers from Jefferson High. Jefferson High School officers include John Haymaker, reporter; Sandi Moler, treasurer; Suzanne Moler, vice president; JaNece Reid, president; Lisa Shade, secretary; and Michelle Slusher, historian. Land Trust Represented at MADISON, WI, - Just as the is- sues of sprawl and the unremit- ting loss of open space are grab- bing the public's attention, Karene Motivans, Executive Di- rector of The Land Trust of the Eastern Panhandle joined more than 1,200 officials, landowners and volunteers from hundreds of land trusts at the 1998 National Land Trust Rally, the nation's largest gathering devoted to land conservation. The conference was held October 17-20 in Madison, WI. "The Rally is always instruc- tive and inspirational," said Ms. Motivans. "But this year it was especially important because Land Trust Alliance, which spon- sors the Rally, just released new information about substantive gains made by local land trusts during the past decade." The Land Trust Alliance, based out of Washington, D.C released its Land Trust Census in early Oc- tober showing that land trusts around the country conserved more than 4.7 million acres, a 135 percent increase over acreage pro- tected as of 1988. The Census also reported that the number of land trusts has grown to 1,213 a 63 per- rwhen the smoke clears, call cent increase over the 743 land trusts operating in 1988. The Census shows that in West Virginia, land trusts are just gain- ing momentum and a handful of local land trusts in the state have already protected over 400 acres. The Land Trust of the Eastern Panhandle has completed several conservation easements over the past year, permanently protecting i hill II !

The Land Trust of the Eastern Panhandle was founded in 1994, and seeks to protect land through voluntary land owner initiative such as the donation of land and conservation easements. These methods include income and es- tate tax benefits. The Land Trust mission is to preserve scenic lands, natural areas, historic landscapes and productive farm- land in Morgan, Berkeley and Jef- ferson Counties.
