CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Faced with dwindling revenue, the Boy Scouts of America's Buckskin Council is considering its options for three properties in West Virginia and Virginia.

Art King, president of the Charleston-based council's Executive Board, says last year's stock market downturn hit a $1 million endowment fund hard. Fundraising efforts are generating less money.

A task force formed by the board looked at the Buckskin Scout Reservation in Pocahontas County, Camp Chief Logan in Logan County and Camp Roland near Bastian, Va. Its recommendations include selling 1,200 acres of the Pocahontas County property and creating nonprofit corporations to lease and operate the other properties.

The recommendations will be presented to the Executive Board at its Nov. 5 meeting.
