#WNCFORTHEPLANET | Our mountains, our rivers, our planet. We’re in this together. 2018-05-14T14:16:37+00:00

TAKE PART IN A MONTH-LONG CELEBRATION OF OUR PLANET AND OUR REGION

Western North Carolina is a beautiful place, and its people have a special connection to our mountains and the rivers and streams that flow from their pristine headwaters and wind their away around our villages, towns and cities. This love of earth and planet is deep, and it binds us to the fates and fortunes of people, plants and animals everywhere.  

That’s why Western North Carolina is celebrating Earth Day throughout the entire month of April by coming together to act locally and think globally. This year, local community and environmental groups are teaming up to offer a myriad of service days, workshops and educational events and celebrations.

Lend a hand cleaning up our rivers, restoring native plant and animal habitats, or clearing and fortifying hiking trails in our forests and parks. Or, learn how to build a bat box, how to weatherize your home to fight climate change, or what river bugs can tell you about the health of our rivers and streams.
