4-H Science Behind the Sport- Canopy Tour

4-H members in Monongalia County are being provided with an awesome opportunity through the WVU Outdoor Adventure Program. Members are invited to attend a Science Behind the Sport Canopy Tour at the WVU Forest. The WVU Canopy Tour will be held on April 26th at noon at the WVU Adventure Outdoor Education Center located near Cooper’s Rock. It is open to the first 24 youth who complete the registration packet, which is attached. Registration is due to the Extension Office by March 23. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis and once 24 registration forms are received, we will begin a waitlist. The Adventure WV canopy tour is comprised of four ziplines, an aerial bridge, and a tandem rappel station to exit the course. Each zip or leg of the course ranges in length from the 201’ starting zip, to the 830’ zip at the conclusion of the course. Throughout the canopy tour experience, participants will learn about the University Research Forest and the science behind the sport. Additional details will be mailed to the 24 participants who sign-up for the canopy zip line tour. If you have any questions or need more information, please contact the Extension Office at 304-291-7201.
