West Virginia Rivers Coalition in Fayetteville

Posted:

West Virginians for Public Lands was in Fayetteville this week to spread awareness about their efforts.

With live music, conversation and a love for the state of West Virginia, the event brought together people to talk about some changes that may be just around the corner.

Matt Kearns with West Virginia Rivers Public Lands Campaigns said, "One of the things we really have our eye on is called the Land and Water Conservation Fund. That takes money from offshore oil developments of our public resources and then re-distributes it to states to help support recreation and conservation projects. That funding is going to expire at the end of the fiscal year on September 30th if Congress doesn't do anything to renew it."

The event was held at The Grove to help raise money for the Public Lands campaign and to raise awareness for the issues they're fighting for.
