West Virginia’s Senator, Joe Manchin, along with Senator Gardner of Colorado, struck a deal for a joint bill to fund the Restore Our Parks Act and the Land and Water Conservation Fund.

This is a huge win for our state! Parks support economic development by directly employing over a thousand West Virginians— not to mention those who work in other parts of the tourism industry.

Our sincere thanks to Senator Joe Manchin for advancing our state’s economic development while safeguarding our public lands for generations to come.
