Celebrating Life in the Mountains:
Points North!
Tuesday, April 17, 2012,  7 pm
Reuter Center in the Manheimer Room.  Free, the public is invited.  
This fascinating series continues with Points North highlighting points of interest north, south, east, and west of the Asheville area.  This program features two iconic landmarks that lie primarily north of Asheville.
Julie Jenkins, Community Program Manager for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, will highlight the history and numerous opportunities the Appalachian Trail offers.

Over two million people hike a portion of the A.T. — one of the longest footpaths in the world — each year. 

Carolyn Ward, Ph.D, Chief Executive Officer of the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation, will offer an overview and informative information about the Blue Ridge Parkway and its heritage.

The Parkway has been voted one of America’s favorite drives and consists of 469 miles of scenic and recreational opportunities. Few people are fortunate enough to have the world class opportunities that we have in Asheville.

If you’re reading this blog, you probably know all about the A.T. and the Parkway. But it’s all about meeting the people behind these organizations.

P.S. If you’re wondering, Friends of the Smokies spoke as part of this program last fall.
