Rally to Protect Upper Cheat Old Growth Forest November 14 1:00 pm
I'm asking you to join us at the Rally to Protect Upper Cheat Headwaters and Old-Growth Forest. The Upper Cheat River is a treasure within the Monongahela National Forest. The forest provides clean drinking water and flood protection for communities, wildlife habitat for endangered species, and miles of trails to explore the outdoors.

But unfortunately, these programs are not legal in West Virginia—yet!   More
