West Virginia parks offering public service opportunities
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- West Virginia state parks are offering opportunities for residents and visitors who want to take part in the "Governor's Day to Serve" this upcoming weekend.
West Virginia State Parks Chief Ken Caplinger says the Sept. 29 event is a chance for people to lend a hand with state parks projects and to help others in need.
Several hikes have been scheduled to help clean up trails across the state, including ones at North Bend State Park, Tomlinson Run State Park, Twin Falls State Park, Pipestem State Park and Cacapon Resort State Park.
In addition, the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources says Tygart Lake State Park is conducting a non-perishable food drive for the Taylor County Food Bank. More information can be found on the agency's website at http://www.wvdnr.gov.
