VIDEO: Second Creek efforts help fishing business in Greenbrier Valley
In recent weeks, WVCA Executive Director Brian Farkas has shared a video with members of the House and Senate finance committees during the Agency's budget presentations to the West Virginia Legislature.
The video features Jacob Ott, the owner of Otters Guide Service in the Greenbrier Valley, who said the work of the WVCA and the Greenbrier Valley Conservation District has benefited his business by giving him the opportunity to guide more fishing trips. This includes work on the stream itself and also excluding cattle from Second Creek and Kitchen Creek, which is a headwater stream of Second.
Farkas has told senators and delegates that Ott's example is indicative of how the Agency's work protects and helps to grow the tax base in West Virginia.
