Dear Governor Earl Ray Tomblin,
Blackwater Canyon is West Virginia’s scenic "Crown Jewel"!
Former Senator Robert C. Byrd called it "one of West Virginia’s most cherished natural treasures."
The West Virginia Supreme Court said, “If the Blackwater Canyon is destroyed, it will be a tragedy for the people of West Virginia.”
Please protect Blackwater Canyon and start negotiations for the purchase of Allegheny Wood Products' 2,700 acres of land in the Canyon.
AWP's owner has said he is willing to sell this property, but negotiations have stalled, and need to be restarted.
Thank you so much for your attention!
