Join Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy in partnership with the National Parks Conservation Association and Nature Valley for a volunteer work day in the Highlands of Roan.  This work day will take place on the SAHC’s protected Big Rock Creek Preserve  to support an initiative to connect people with land.

Formerly the home of Trailridge summer camp, the Big Rock Creek Preserve in Mitchell County, NC contains 127 acres of unique high elevation habitat and streams. It is surrounded by Pisgah National Forest on three sides, and the Appalachian Trail is less than a mile to the north. Our Earth Month service day will involve improving and maintaining the camping and trail facilities on Big Rock Creek Preserve, providing better access to connect people to nature.

Volunteer activities will include trail construction, vegetation management, and site beautification. Work gloves, safety eye wear, hand tools, and first aid kits will be available on site. Pre-registration is required; please click below for additional information about this workday.
