Ready to take your public lands activism beyond writing letters to decision makers? Ready to inspire others in your community to act? You’re ready to be a West Virginians for Public Lands volunteer leader. West Virginians for Public Lands has a fun daylong training to get you there. Whether you are new to volunteering or you are already a conservation leader, this workshop is for you. No prior organizing or volunteer experience is required.
During the workshop, you’ll join a corps of regional volunteer leaders from across the state who are already successfully defending West Virginia’s public lands. They’ll help facilitate the workshop, and will share strategies that work and experiences from the field.
Joining the WVPL volunteer leaders are Pat Lane, a seasoned veteran of national campaigns, and WV Rivers’ Matt Kearns, who will provide background on public lands policy. This free informal and interactive workshop takes place on Saturday, March 24, in Thomas, WV.
