posted by: Jami Thompson

 19th Annual Watershed Celebration Day


ONLINE NOMINATION FORM: www.wvca.us/wvwn/wcdn_Nominate.cfm


The West Virginia Watershed Network (WVWN) will be sponsoring our 19th Annual  Watershed Celebration Day on Friday, August 18th and Saturday August 19th at Camp Dawson in Preston County. The Friends of the Cheat have offered to host us in their watershed and are working with us to develop an agenda and exciting tour opportunities. Last year we had 22 watersheds represented and the response to continue the event is overwhelming. So make plans to join us in the summer this year to explore the great Cheat River in the beautiful mountains of Preston County. Stay tuned for more details. We love our jobs because of what we are able to accomplish with you. Thank you for all you do for West Virginia streams and rivers!

 Nominations are now open online at the above link. The WVWN is asking that you take a little time to share what you have done since we heard from you last. For more information and to submit a nomination, visit: www.wvca.us/wvwn/wcdn.cfm  and answer the following questions. The project period is May 1, 2016 - April 30, 2017. We hope you will also upload 2-4 photos showing your accomplishments and your volunteers at work.


  • What makes your group and watershed unique?
  • What accomplishments are you most proud of during the reporting period of May 1, 2016 - April 2017?
  • Who are your watershed “CHAMPIONS”? What makes their efforts extraordinary?
  • What does your group do that others can learn from?
  • What is the greatest need in your watershed that your group seeks to address?

The deadline to submit your nomination is June 15, 2017. Stay tuned for more information on the events and registration details. Thanks for all of the work you do and taking some more time to tell us about it. WV Watershed Volunteers are still the ones making a difference for West Virginia’s streams and rivers!
