It's confirmed: The Big Ivy Forest meeting with the U.S. Forest Service will be held Thursday, February 5, at 7 p.m. at the Big Ivy Community Center.
We hope to pack the room with folks who want to protect the forest. Already, over 800 supporters have joined our efforts to stop the proposed logging in Big Ivy.
The Forest Service district ranger and his staff will provide a brief overview of the proposed forest plan followed by discussion and questions from the audience. This is an important opportunity for the Forest Service to hear directly from the people who care about this wild mountain treasure.
Everyone is invited. Please spread the word and bring as many folks as possible.
The Big Ivy Community Center is located at 540 Dillingham Road, which is about 25 minutes from Asheville. Arrive early: seating will be limited, and we expect a very large crowd.
