We are the keepers of the mountains. Love 'em or leave 'em. Just don't destroy them. Dare to be a keeper too?
Keeper of the Mountains Foundation (KOTM) was created to preserve and foster the values of mountain culture. KOTM also supports efforts to tell the story of the destruction of Kayford Mountain and the surrounding community as a result of mountaintop removal strip mining.
|Description||The Keeper of the Mountains Foundation educates people to work for healthier, more sustainable mountain communities and to end Mountaintop Removal. We believe a better future requires everyday people to come together and recognize their power to make long-term, lasting change. We envision an organization, led by West Virginians, with real power to move beyond an extraction based economy and put in its place an economy that values people, land, and mountain heritage.|
On the Road Program:
The On The Road Again Program educates others about the devastating effects of Mountaintop Removal Mining by telling our personal stories and experiences of living in and around the coalfields of West Virginia. We believe that through our stories and experiences, people will become aware of what is happening to our mountains, streams, ecology, health, and heritage. This awareness will lead to the action for change that is needed to move beyond a coal-based economy to one that values people, land, and mountain heritage.
