Buckhannon: Free Event Celebrating Local Water Protection Efforts on August 24

You’re invited! Join West Virginia Rivers Coalition and our community and agency partners at our Safe Water Celebration, a free community event on August 24, 2017 at 5:30pm at the Buckhannon Riverwalk.

The event is designed as a fun and engaging way for citizens to learn about source water protection and local efforts to protect public drinking water supplies in Buckhannon River Watershed. You’ll have an opportunity to learn about current and future projects impacting your drinking water supplies from partners working to improve local water quality.

The event also features live music by Seth Maynard and a presentation by Doug Wood, local naturalist and historian. Tygart River Outfitters will be providing raft and kayak rides on the Buckhannon River. Locally grown and prepared food will be provided by Fish Hawk Acres and Green Acres Farm. The event will have hands-on kid’s activities, door prizes, and an interfaith water blessing (participants may bring water from their home for the blessing).

Bring the whole family to spend an evening celebrating water along the banks of the Buckhannon River.
 Rain location is the Green Room, basement of the gymnasium on the WVWC campus.
