Nestled on 12 environmentally sensitive acres in southern Jefferson County, West Virginia, Cool Spring Preserve features a wooded landscape bordered on one side by Bullskin Run, a major stream with significant historical value.  Much of the land is wooded and is designated a birding "hotspot."  

The land is located in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. On the property are many springs and part of a Shenandoah Wet Prairie marsh which contains 18 rare and very rare West Virginia plants. Only 100 acres of this type of marsh are known to exist globally.
