Great Outdoors Initiative Coming to Asheville

Come to America’s Great Outdoors Listening Session in Asheville – tomorrow 

Thursday, July 15, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm    High level folks from Washington, D.C. want to hear our ideas on how to protect our public lands and encourage more people to enjoy the outdoors. It is amazing to me that they’re having this in Asheville, which is so much smaller than the other large cities they visited. This shows what a powerhouse of outdoor activities and concern this area has.
