'This is a ground floor view of Canaan Valley, a 27,000 acre area of mixed wetlands, upland and grassland habitat, near Davis, West Virginia, which the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposes to preserve as a National Wildlife Refuge.  At present, West Virginia holds the distinction of being the only state in the nation without a Wildlife Refuge.  As a Refuge the Valley would provide outstanding educational and recreational opportunities.  The proposed Davis Power Project would flood sites as this.  The 6,000 acres of wetlands here is the largest complex of bog swamp communities in the Appalachians.  Fifty- Five mammals and over 580 different plant species make their home in Canaan, many are normally found only in Canada.'
