ANOTHER BIG SUCCESS FOR BIG IVY

Last night, 200 Big Ivy supporters crammed into crowded rooms for hours to voice their support for protecting Big Ivy. As a result, the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners unanimously passed a resolution supporting an expended wilderness recommendation for Big Ivy. Thank you immensely for all of your efforts. The public comments that many of you shared were incredibly moving and powerful.

We have more work to do from here, but it's a really exciting and significant first step towards permanently protecting Big Ivy.
