Protecting public lands is about all of us taking action, sometimes at critical moments, on very short notice. Your letters, your calls, your attendance at public meetings — every action matters. The most important thing is to stay informed so we can all work together to make sure our public lands stay in public hands and that they remain accessible to everyone who loves them.

Advocating Close to Home   

Protecting public lands is a year-round commitment. The best way to show Charleston you care about your local state park, forest, or wildlife area is to build a relationship with your local State Delegate and State Senator. Find them here.

You can meet them locally, in their office or a coffee shop. Just share your story with them about how you use OUR state lands, and how you want to preserve our traditional outdoor recreation on our public lands. Better still, take a legislator to your favorite public land and show them why it is so important to protect.  


Our Wild & Wonderful Mon

This report summarizes a series of listen sessions held in the Fall 2021 on the Monongahela National Forest and provides policy recommendations to address identified concerns.

The virtual and in-person listening sessions brought together individuals and groups who use the Mon Forest for hiking, hunting, fishing, boating, and other recreation activities. Participants discussed their ideas to improve the Mon Forest. Common themes included assuring access for all abilities and communities not traditionally using public lands, enhancing trail maintenance and signage, preserving water quality, and protecting wilderness areas in the Mon from overuse.
