There are many ways to support Friends of New River Gorge National Park and Preserve. We always need volunteers! We do support for races and other events in the park, and periodically do trash cleanups. Please email us and like our Facebook page to find upcoming volunteer opportunities.

Upcoming Events

Check out some of our current projects! 

River Put In Blowers

Working in conjunction with the National Park Service, the Friends have installed and maintain hardened blowers at Summersville Dam on the Gauley River and Cunard on the New River for private users to inflate their craft. We are responsible for maintenance of these popular units. Contribute here to keep them blowing!

Bike Maintenance Station

We plan to install a bike maintenance station at the Arrowhead trailhead. This station will include a stand, pump, and basic tools for mountain bike enthusiasts to service their bikes. But we still need funding to make this happen! Contribute here to keep this project moving!
