The Clinch Coalition Naturalist Rally began in 2008. This year experts, educators and
knowledgeable naturalists will continue to explore the unique world of southwest Virginia through 12 to 15 minute programs. Organizations participating include the University of Virginia at Wise, Bays Mountain Park, Virginia Cooperative Extension, Upper Tennessee River Roundtable, Appalachian Voices, Natural Tunnel State Park, The Nature Conservancy, Virginia Polytechnic Institute (VPI) and the Virginia Master Naturalist High Knob Chapter.
The Clinch Coalition formed in August 1998 when a small group of concerned citizens
organized to protect southwest Virginia's great natural resources. The group endeavors to make the public aware and actively involved with the environment through educational Programs, guided hikes, trail work and the High Knob Naturalist Rally.
The Clinch Coalition works with the U.S. Forest Service make the High Knob Naturalist Rally possible.
