Proposed Birthplace of Rivers National Monument

West Virginia's wildest places merit National Monument status. Please come and learn more about the proposed Birthplace of Rivers National Monument, which would be West Virginia's first and the largest east of the Mississippi! Thursday, October 10th, 7pm. WVU's Percival Hall Rm 332,  Morgantown. This grassroots initiative is supported by hunters, anglers, backpackers, businesses, naturalists, and ordinary families who see the environmental and economic benefits of conferring National Monument status on parts of the southern Monongahela National Forest. Speakers include Drew Ball, Sierra Club, and Dr. Alan Collins of Downstream Strategies who will present findings on the economic impact. National Monument designation will remind the world of the beauty and majesty of West Virginia's mountains! Co-sponsored by Sierra Club and WVU Recreation and Parks.
