Come To The Capitol To Protect Our Public Lands
The WV Legislature is holding Interim Sessions and the Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources Subcommittee meeting topic is “Presentations regarding use of off-road vehicles (ORVs) in state parks.”
We need your help to ensure that the subcommittee members know that we value our state lands and DO NOT want ORV access to these beautiful natural areas. The meeting is on Sunday, September 11 at 5:00 PM.
Two of the four speakers are from outside West Virginia, and are supported by the ORV industry. Why are they speaking about our beloved WV State Parks – and what is their agenda?
CALL OR EMAIL THE MEMBERS of the Subcommittee THIS WEEK and let them know that you are opposed to the use of ORVs on our state lands. Feel free to join us in person at the Capitol for the meeting. LET’S MAKE SURE THEY HEAR US!
