Quotes and Comments
“The Falling Run Greenspace will be an accessible, vibrant urban oasis with the potential to become a central park for the heart of Morgantown forging a connection between WVU's Organic Farm and Main Campus. Ultimately, the long term vision is to provide an alternate connection to the Mileground area.”
“This is a legacy project. The students that have volunteered with this project have left their own personal legacy on the greenspace that will be used for many generations to come. They will be able to come back 25 years from now and tell their kids that they helped build these trails.” -- Katherine Bolyard, volunteer coordinator of the project.
