Event description

Description

Join Wild Virginia as we travel to Bent Mountain to meet the people and places impacted by the Mountain Valley Pipeline.

Why should you come?
Bent Mountain is experiencing the ravages of the fossil-fuel industry first-hand. The Mountain Valley fracked-gas pipeline is being built right through the heart of this small, mountain community, and the company is not being held accountable for the damages created by the pipeline's construction.

This outing is for anyone who cares about our planet. No experience necessary. Landowners want to show you what's happening so you can tell others. Your time and attention mean a lot to the people being impacted. We know this pipeline will pump dirty fossil fuels into our atmosphere, and it is already polluting our waterways. The science is in. We need to stop producing greenhouse gases and transition to a clean energy future - yesterday. Come learn how the Mountain Valley Pipeline is a dangerous project for the people and places on Bent Mountain and for all of us.

What should you expect?
The agenda for the field tour will be set more definitely as we coordinate with landowners, but we will make time to hear their stories and learn from them about what's been happening to the lands they love. Before you leave, you will learn what you can do to help. Count on some walking in uneven areas. There may be the chance to do some more strenuous hiking, but there will be opportunities for those who are unable or unwilling to do so. Bring rain gear, sunscreen, a water bottle, and good walking shoes.

What about food?
A potluck dinner is being arranged. Please bring your own lunches for two days. We will arrange breakfast, coffee, tea, and water.

Where will we sleep?
Several landowners have been kind enough to open their homes for us to stay with them, so please be sure you do come if you sign up. Nearby paid accommodations are also available. Please contact info@wildvirginia.org for other accommodation options.
