Appalachian Voices Celebrates its Heroes

Appalachian Voices’ very own Matt Wasson and Benji Burrell, and Coal River Mountain Watch’s Lorelei Scarbro star in a film by Google Earth, celebrating Appalachian Voices as a Google Earth Hero—inspiring the world to take initiative!

“We are thrilled by the fact that hundreds of millions of people around the world use Google Earth to discover, explore, and learn. But perhaps we’re even more proud of the fact that many people have used Google Earth as a tool to help them change the world; ordinary people achieving extraordinary goals with the help of Google Earth.”
