Promoting Recreational Access

After more than two decades, WVRC is still the West Virginia paddler's voice in Charleston and Washington, D.C., whether the issue is access, safety, or fighting for clean streams welcoming to healthy recreation.

In 2014, WVRC is working in support of recreational access on the Dries segment of the New River and sustained funding to keep up the West Virginia stream-gaging network—an important tool for recreational boating and safety. 

The Birthplace of Rivers National Monument would permanently preserve recreational access and clean water in a special area of the Monongahela National Forest.
