Governor Wants to Open State Parks for Commercial Logging

A bill to allow commercial logging in West Virginia’s State Parks, Senate Bill 270, was introduced in the WV Legislature at the request of Governor Justice. This bill would end an 80-year ban on logging in West Virginia’s State Parks. Contact the Governor now, tell him you oppose lifting the logging ban!

The bill is an ill-conceived plan to log our parks, presented as a way to pay for park maintenance — but it risks destroying the Wild & Wonderful places we love.

Take action now! Click here to send the Governor a letter. After you’ve sent your etter, amplify your voice by calling the Governor’s Office at 304-558-2000 and share your concerns about logging our state parks.
