Vandalism in Linville Gorge

Grafitti Wiseman's view

This act of vandalism was perpetrated a few months ago at the Linville Gorge Wilderness’ famous Wiseman’s View.

The photograph above is a travesty, and Wild South will be restoring the natural splendor of this site.  

We need YOUR help.

This summer, Wild South began working with the Forest Service to remove graffiti that defaces OUR natural treasures throughout the Linville Gorge Wilderness.

For the coming months, Wild South will be training, equipping and deploying staff and volunteers to hike deep into the wilderness and spend hours upon hours, often in the baking sun, removing graffiti.

We can’t do this work without YOU. We are asking our friends, family members, neighbors and supporters to make a gift to Wild South.  We have set up the following donation page to ensure your gift will go directly toward removing graffiti from the Linville Gorge Wilderness.
