Protect Our Rivers By Supporting Sustainable Farms
Many small farms in our mountain region have lost business due to the COVID-19 outbreak. In addition, large-scale meat operations in North Carolina are one of the leading contributors to water pollution in the state. Buying from sustainable local farms now is a way to not only feed your family but to protect our environment.
We’ve compiled a map of farms in our region that feed us while using practices that support healthy rivers, lakes and streams. Check out the map to find sustainable farms in your local watershed, and sign the pledge to support sustainable farms here.
Our Two-Week BioBlitz is Underway! in Madison County
Our two-week BioBlitz, held in partnership with Madison Natural Heritage, hopes to gather as much information as possible about the biodiversity of Madison County’s plants, animals and other species. It’s a great opportunity for Madison County residents to explore their neighborhoods, nearby forests and open public lands, and to record their findings with the iNaturalist smartphone app or website. Can’t identify what you found? Don’t worry – our experts can identify it for you once you upload it to the app! Sign up to discover with us here.
