Get Active in the Park Partnership

Get Active in the Park is an innovative partnership between the National Park Service and Active Southern West Virginia. Community Captains deliver free, beginner-level instructional programs to the New River Gorge National River region. Get Active in the Park empowers our community to see the outdoors as a space for health and wellness to take place. This project was made possible in part by a grant from the National Park Foundation.
