| Saturday, May 29, 2010

Coal and natural gas producer Consol Energy Inc., based in Cecil, Washington County, will give $15 million to build a 700-foot bridge at a national Boy Scout high adventure center planned in West Virginia.

The Consol Energy Bridge will connect the main part of The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in the New River Gorge region to the eastern half of the reserve's land.

A $50 million foundation gift is building the center, which will provide activities for 50,000 youths each year such as whitewater rafting, rock climbing and mountain biking.

Similar centers are in New Mexico, Minnesota and Florida.
