This summer Wild South is ramping up our Campaign to protect 25,500 acres of some of the most spectacular scenery in Western North Carolina. Stretching from Grandfather Mountain along the Blue Ridge Parkway to Highway 321 sits the proposed Grandfather National Scenic Area (GNSA).
Wild South has been working to protect this area with members of the community to ensure that this treasure remains unmarred by industrial logging and road building. Because we understand that people are more likely to value and protect a place if they enjoy it we are hosting hikes this summer.
Our first hike is scheduled for July 13th and will be a short trek to the heart of the GNSA. The hike will take us along Thunderhole creek and we will visit the creek’s namesake, a rushing falls that spills deep into the bedrock with a steady roar.
We would love to have you join us. To sign up for this and future hikes join our Meetup Group today. Also be sure to “Like” our new Facebook Page for all the latest news and updates.
As always, the public is invited to attend. The majority of this meeting will be spent discussing the work that the Bankhead Recreation Working Group has completed to date and getting feedback from Panel members and the general public, so please make every effort to attend. This is a valuable opportunity to learn about and provide feedback for future management of the Bankhead’s recreational resources.
Wild South is proud to present our first Annual Outdoor Photo Contest. Open to professionals and amateurs alike, we celebrate our public lands through imagery by preserving our natural landscapes through the eyes of passionate photographers.
Join our Volunteer Wilderness Ranger team and help steward our Alabama wilderness areas, Sipsey, Cheaha and Dugger Mountain.
