Regina conceived of the idea of introducing some of the people that make our environmental movement in West Virginia so vibrant and close. Many individuals serve
several organizations and many issues are the joint concerns of multiple organizations, so there is considerable overlap in personnel and expertise. Fortunately, we all welcome each others assistance!
The countless hours of volunteering that each of these people devote to helping with the work of raising environmental awareness in WV is the best proof of their dedication. If others want to contribute stories about environmental heroes, they should send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
