WVGA and the National Park Service 09/03/2015 The West Virginia Geographic Alliance, working through the National Geographic Society, will help the National Park Service celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2016. We expect 250 students and teachers to attend events at New River Gorge National River and Harpers Ferry National Historic Park in May 2016. Lunch and snacks will be served and classroom materials will be provided to teachers. The highlight of Geography Day at the Park will be a bio-blitz. More information to come in spring 2016.
