Save Coonskin Park
Welcome to any person interested in the future of Charleston's Coonskin Park! Yeager Airport in Charleston has proposed a runway extension that would destroy approximately 400 acres of Coonskin Park, including all the upper shelters and hiking trails, and would forever bury Coonskin Branch (including "the Grotto" and the Alice Knight Memorial Trail) under hundreds of feet of rubble. We're here to protect Coonskin.
what would we lose?
Watch these videos explaining how much of our park would be destroyed by this proposal!
A large portion of our park would be bulldozed into a mountain top removal site and the dirt used to fill in the valley to extend the runway.
Take the time to read this amazing article from the Charleston Gazette about the creation of OUR park in 1950! Let's rekindle this spirit!
