Thank you for your interest in attending our Environmental Day at the West Virginia State Capitol.
If your group is interested in having a table at E-Day or you would like to attend, please register here Participation is free. E-Day is an excellent opportunity for environmental groups to network and feature their work, meet with legislators, and help promote WVEC’s legislative priorities.
Here is some important information for those planning to attend:
- Directions: The West Virginia State Capitol Complex is located in Charleston, WV. If traveling on the Interstate, take Exit 99 (the Greenbrier Street, State Capitol exit) on I-77/64, one mile east of where I-64 and 77 join together in Charleston.
- Parking: Several parking options are available near the Capitol building, including street parking and a public parking lot located two blocks from the Capitol Complex at Laidley Field (Lots 7A and 7B), located on the stadium side of Elizabeth Street. Be sure to park in the smaller lots closer to the stadium, which offer free parking. The bigger lot across the street is paid parking and you’ll get a ticket.
Laidley Field is within walking distance, but a free shuttle service is provided between the lot and the Capitol Complex. Please note the shuttle typically does not operate between 9:30 am-11:30 am and between 1:45 pm-3:00 pm. The shuttle runs every 10-15 minutes. You can also request a shuttle at any time during the day by calling (304) 558-0248. We recommend checking out the WV State Capitol Police visitor information and The Citizen’s Guide to the Legislature for more information.
- Entrance: Visitors may enter at either of the Directed Public Access Points midway through the East and West wings. Visitors will need to pass through security screening before entering the building. E-day will be held in the Upper Rotunda House side. Our lobby team will be on hand to help you find your way around the Capitol.
- Additional Information: House and Senate Committee contact information is on our website. You can also download a WV Legislature Membership Directory and West Virginia Legislature 2023 Information Packet to learn more about your representatives and their committees.
