Sign-up to receive our water policy updates to stay in the loop and learn how you can make a difference for clean water in West Virginia! Here's a preview of some of the issues we'll need your help on:
Good News for Special Places
Special places like the Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge benefit from the Land and Water Conservation Fund.
Last month WV Rivers asked you to take action on the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), which helps protect and provide access to special places. It worked! Congress has approved a 3-year extension to LWCF by adopting the 2016 federal spending bill. Not only was the LWCF renewed, it received a $150 million increase over last year’s funding!
