Protect Goshen Pass

1,838 Signatures Goal: 5,000

We the undersigned believe that allowing the Boy Scout Jamboree to come to Goshen Pass will forever damage this most scenic and natural resource in Rockbridge County and not provide more than minimal economic benefit to the County and communities that would suffer all of the impact. Potential damaging factors include: * Basic human impact of 250,000 visitors in a confined natural area * Wildlife impact * Inadequate transportation routes for expected traffic * Water quality degradation * Too much human waste * Groundwater depletion

Friends of the Maury River Organizes to Protect Goshen Pass A recent announcement that the National Boy Scouts of America’s national Jamboree intends to move to Goshen, Virginia came as a surprise to local residents in Lexington, Rockbridge Baths, Goshen and Rockbridge County. Citing the narrow and winding country roads, lack of adequate sewage treatment, volume of people overwhelming the fragile area, effects on wildlife, and the infrastructure that will change the natural resources of Goshen Pass forever, local residents met recently to form “Friends of the Maury River.”
