    In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Trails System and National Wild & Scenic Rivers Systems in 2018, the National Park Foundation has awarded a grant to the National Parks of Southern West Virginia in support of the Love Your Park initiative. This initiative helps to foster a better sense of ownership and stewardship of our parks through service. The National Park Service, along with the Friends of New River Gorge National River are planning three work days to help improve the Bluestone Turnpike Trail, a scenic and historic walking path that runs the entire 10 mile length of Bluestone National Scenic River. 

    Check the Love Your Park page for more info about this and two other Love Your Park service days.
