Rapidan River Threatened by Road Proposal

If you’ve missed the last few Chapter meetings, you may not be aware that the Madison County Board of Supervisors is proposing a new entrance to Shenandoah National Park. The entrance would use the existing road along the Rapidan River through the Rapidan Wildlife Management Area  and go through the gate and past President Hoover’s camp. TU members and other users of the area are quite concerned about the impact this proposal would have on our namesake river and the pristine area it flows though. Rather than going into great detail, we have created a Fight the Madison Gateway page dedicated to information on this critical matter.  included a link to an Action Alert prepared by the Rapidan Chapter.

Also, we have a link to the Virginia Council of Trout Unlimited website at http://www.vctu.org/tag/rapidan-river/.

At the end of the VCTU article are links to letters of opposition from Rapidan Camps and a letter to the Madison Eagle with also contains information complementary to the Chapter’s Action Alert.
