The National Park Service in Southern West Virginia
MetadataShow full item record
The National Park Service manages three units in southern West Virginia, New River Gorge National River, Gauley River National Recreation Area, and Bluestone National Scenic River. All three units were designated for their outstanding natural and cultural resources in addition to their exceptional recreational opportunities. As the National Park Service moves into its second century of service, park managers must find new ways to create a culture of civic engagement, stewardship, and advocacy within our communities. Friends of New River Gorge NR provides public support to all three national parks in southern WV with fundraising campaigns, volunteer projects, and advocacy for park programs.
