First coming together in 1965, the West Virginia Highlands Conservancy is one of the state's oldest environmental activist organizations. With the increased awareness of environmental issues in the 1960s, a coalition of recreational users of the West Virginia Highlands came together to address a whole host of environmental threats to our state. Over the past 40 years, the Highlands Conservancy has continued to be the leader in protecting the natural environment of our state through both defensive and offensive campaigns.
WVRC's mission is to "seek the conservation and restoration of West Virginia's exceptional rivers and streams". The goals pursuant to that mission include preserving the high quality waters of the state, and improving those waters that should be of a higher quality.
We serve those who use and appreciate the waters of West Virginia in a variety of ways. Most notably we seek to protect the resources of our headwater state to ensure clean water for all. This includes those who reside in West Virginia; those who visit to recreate; the wildlife that depend on a healthy habitat; and those who live downstream and rely upon West Virginia's water to ensure that they too enjoy clean water.
The purpose of UMRA is to promote the general development of the area encompassed by the drainage basin for the Upper Monongahela River in West Virginia. Our primary concerns are economic development and quality of life concerns related to the environment and recreational opportunities.
