Join MountainTrue for the 2016 Wild & Scenic Film Festival, featuring the year’s best short-form nature, wilderness and outdoor adventure films. This year’s festival takes place on the beautiful grounds of Sierra Nevada’s Mills River Brewery under the open sky of an outdoor amphitheater carved into the side of a hill and located on the banks of the French Broad River. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Get there early to grab a drink, explore the gardens and snag a prime viewing spot!
For the month of August, fishing will be good throughout the French Broad River Watershed for both fishers and non-fishers alike. In partnership with Sweetwater, MountainTrue is hosting a campaign to clean up the French Broad River through the sale of paper fish in local restaurants, bars and businesses. Show your support for swimmable, fishable and drinkable water in the French Broad.
The community is invited to lend a hand and help clean up Henderson County’s rivers and streams. Join MountainTrue on Saturday, September 10 for the annual Henderson County Big Sweep – a county-wide litter cleanup program that brings citizens and community organizations together to clear trash from their waterways. Civic organizations, Scout troops, church groups, school groups, Adopt-A-Stream teams, neighborhood associations, city and county departments, local businesses, and individuals can all pitch in to make our waters cleaner and healthier. Form a team with friends and family or join an existing team.
