Exciting news: Asheville City Council will consider a resolution supporting permanent protection for Big Ivy at their next meeting this TUESDAY, AUGUST 22 at 5 p.m. at City Hall downtown.
Asheville depends on the scenic views, recreational opportunities, and water quality provided by the national forests that surround the city. Big Ivy protects the breathtaking views from Craggy Gardens that many Asheville residents and tourists cherish. Big Ivy also shelters the Mountains to Sea Trail, old-growth forests, pristine watersheds, rare species, and beloved waterfalls.
Can you attend the Asheville City Council meeting this coming Tuesday?
This is a critical decision-making time for the Forest Service, so input right now is key. Asheville is the largest city in the Pisgah-Nantahala National Forest footprint and the economic engine of the mountains. A vast majority of national forest users come from Asheville. This is probably our most important opportunity to rally political support for Big Ivy.
