A public meeting on a plan to re-designate the New River Gorge National River as New River Gorge National Park and Preserve will take place at 10 a.m. Wednesday in the Canyon Rim Visitor Center Auditorium near Fayetteville.

A bill authorizing the re-designation was introduced last month by Sens. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. Capito and Manchin will host the event, along with U.S. Rep. Carol Miller, R-W.Va.
