Powell River Project Symposium highlights coal mine reclamation efforts

entation on "Black Creek Riparian Restoration Plan." Their colleague James Burger, a forestry professor, will speak about "Developing Scientific Knowledge to Aid Mine Reforestation Practice."

In addition, speakers from the U.S. Office of Surface Mining and the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals, and Energy will describe activities done collaboratively by their two agencies that utilize the results of research conducted by Burger at the Powell River Project. Their presentation on "The Appalachian Regional Reforestation Initiative: A Cooperative Approach to Enhancing Reforestation on Coal Surface Mines" will end the conference.

A full schedule is available on the Virginia Tech Events Calendar (http://www.calendar.vt.edu/main.php?view=event&eventid=1153158923354).

Since 1980, the Powell River Project has included research and education programs to enhance restoration of mined lands and to benefit communities in Southwest Virginia's coalfield region. Its 1,100-acre center is a hub of research programs focused on developing practical, cost-effective solutions to natural resource problems in central Appalachian coal mining areas and education programs operated through Virginia Cooperative Extension that put completed research into practice.

The Powell River Project works collaboratively with other educational entities in the area, including The University of Virginia's College at Wise, where the symposium will be held.
