Headwaters & Waterkeeper

We have two projects to protect a special place in the southern Monongahela National Forest,
 the headwaters of six rivers in one of the largest expanses of wild forest in the Eastern U.S.. 

Birthplace of Rivers National Monument. Monument designation would protect thousands of acres surrounding the Cranberry Wilderness at a time when members of Congress want to open fragile National Forest lands to industrial development. We need to act now—before it’s too late—to preserve this landscape and the recreational and sporting opportunities it provides for future generations to enjoy. Show your support for Birthplace of Rivers National Monument by signing our petition

West Virginia Headwaters WATERKEEPER program

Working with WV Rivers staff, partners, and volunteers—and with support from the Waterkeeper Alliance, the program serves as the eyes and voice for the headwaters.
