 Help Stop Mountaintop Removal in Twilight
Twilight in Boone County, West Virginia is a wonderful place to be for now. But, thanks to multiple mountaintop removal permits, Twilight is the next community on Route 26 to be threatened with extinction. Watch a video, read more and take action here.

News of this new initiative from OVEC is spreading, as is news of OVEC staffer Maria Gunnoe's latest major award. On Feb. 28, Maria received this year’s David Brower Lifetime Achievement Award from the Land, Air, Water Association, the nation’s oldest student environmental law society. She received the honor on February 28 at the Public Interest Environmental Law Conference in Oregon - right after she delivered a keynote address.
