The program will be hosting a training in partnership with Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition (OVEC) and WV Highlands Conservancy at Coonskin Park, in Charleston, WV on Sunday, October 16. Call 304-637-7201 to learn more about this opportunity.

The WV-VA Water Quality Monitoring Program is a program developed by Trout Unlimited that is being implemented by Trout Unlimited and WV Rivers to train volunteers to monitor coldwater streams for impacts from shale gas and pipeline related development and other sources of non-point source pollution. Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition and WV Highlands Conservancy have partnered with TU and WV Rivers to organize this training session.
