Gauley Mountain in the New River Gorge recreation area in West Virginia is under serious danger of being destroyed by mountaintop removal mining. This destructive mining practice will permanently scar one of the most beautiful areas of WV.  The New and Gauley Rivers host some of the world’s best big water playboating and were among my favorite places to paddle when I lived on the East Coast.  These rivers are worth the trip east for any committed whitewater kayaker or rafter.

If you would, please take a few minutes to sign the petition at the link below to help fight for the preservation of this mountain. It only takes a minute or two.

Thank you for your time.  We can make a difference!
