West Virginians for Public Lands
Efforts to defund public lands, eliminate environmental reviews, and steamroll through plans to industrialize our cherished recreation lands were once considered fringe ideas. Now there are members of Congress and the Administration that want to take these lands away from us, leading proposals to sell off our public lands to businesses or give them to cash-strapped states, making it tempting to sell public lands to close budget shortfalls. Our own legislature has even proposed commercial logging in WV state parks.
Paddlers, hunters, anglers, hikers, campers, bikers, and everyone who enjoys being outside — we all need to stand together. Sign up for our e-news to stay informed and learn what you can do, including responding to timely calls to action.
