Monongahela National Forest project to incorporate White Sulphur Springs and Marlinton

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, WV (WVNS) - A USDA rural development project is looking to benefit both Greenbrier and Pocahontas Counties.

Monongahela National Forest officials are partnering with multiple groups across federal, state, and local levels to improve the outdoor recreation economy in the area.

Greenbrier Valley Community Foundation executive director, Anne Bowling Tuckwiller, said she is hoping to make White Sulphur Springs and Marlinton key assets in this project.

"You come to the area for hiking, biking, fishing," Tuckwiller said. "But there are these great communities surrounding the forest that have some cool stuff going on too: fun restaurants, music."

The project is still in the works, with the Greenbrier Valley Community Foundation overseeing the funds and meetings between the agencies.
