Updated: Nov 11, 2023

From Source to Sea: Tracing the Journey of West Virginia's Rivers Welcome to Those West Virginia Rivers, where we are passionate about the conservation, tourism, and recreation opportunities that our beautiful rivers have to offer. In this blog post, we will take you on a journey along the rivers of West Virginia, from their source to the sea, exploring the scenic landscapes they pass through and the various recreational activities they provide. Let's start at the source of these magnificent rivers. West Virginia is blessed with an abundance of natural springs and streams that eventually form our rivers. These pristine water sources are the lifeblood of our rivers, providing clean and clear water for both wildlife and humans to enjoy. Take a moment to appreciate the beauty and serenity of these sources, as they are the beginning of the incredible journey our rivers take. As our rivers flow downstream, they carve their way through breathtaking landscapes. From the rugged mountains of the Appalachian range and the Monongahela National Forest to the rolling hills and valleys, West Virginia's rivers offer a diverse range of scenery to explore. Whether you prefer a leisurely float down a calm river or an adrenaline-pumping whitewater adventure, our rivers have something for everyone. One of the best ways to experience the beauty of our rivers is through recreational activities such as kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and hiking. Imagine gliding along the gentle currents, surrounded by lush greenery and the sounds of nature. Or casting your line into the crystal-clear waters, hoping to catch a trophy fish. The possibilities are endless, and the experiences are truly unforgettable. But it's not just about the recreational opportunities. Our rivers also play a vital role in supporting a diverse ecosystem. They provide habitat for a wide range of plant and animal species, some of which are unique to West Virginia. By conserving and protecting our rivers, we are ensuring the survival of these precious ecosystems for future generations to enjoy. That's why we advocate for the establishment of a West Virginia State Scenic River System. This system would provide additional protection and recognition for our rivers, ensuring that they remain pristine and accessible for years to come. We believe that by raising public awareness and knowledge about West Virginia's wild rivers, we can inspire others to join us in our mission to preserve and protect these natural treasures. So, whether you're a local resident or a visitor from afar, we invite you to explore the rivers of West Virginia. Immerse yourself in the beauty of these waterways and let them captivate your senses. Join us in advocating for the establishment of a West Virginia State Scenic River System, through passage of the West Virginia State Scenic Rivers Act 2024, and together, we can ensure that these rivers continue to flow freely, providing endless opportunities for conservation, tourism, and recreation.

Together, let's celebrate and protect the incredible journey of West Virginia's rivers, from source to sea.
