NERI Blood Drive
The National Park Service staff at New River Gorge National River will be hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive on Thursday, July 26th 2007. The blood drive will take place at the historic Glen Jean Bank (across from the post office and National Park Service headquarters) from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM and is open to all members of the public.
This year the American Red Cross is providing donors an opportunity to win a 2008 Harley Davidson 883 Sportster motorcycle, as well as an opportunity to win WVU season tickets. Donors also will be receiving a special biker T-shirt and refreshments will be provided.
So come join us and “Give the Gift of Life.”

The New River Gorge was logged extensively thoughout the past century. The landscape is now recovering, with the park ecosystem returning to its more natural state, but there are still plenty of signs of the past activities.
