Keeping the "wild" in wonderful West Virginia
Wild places in West Virginia play a significant role in our quality of life and the health of the economy in our state. They boost tourism and can draw a high quality work force, as well as business owners seeking such amenities. Yet, each day more and more of our wild places are permanently lost to development. The West Virginia Wilderness Coalition has brought together a diverse group of concerned citizens who are committed to preserving the last "wild" areas in the state. Recently they drafted a congressional bill that would designate 15 new wilderness areas in the Monongahela National Forest, and also led press tours into these sensative areas.
