MountainTrue Annual Gathering 2022

40th Anniversary Celebration

Celebrate 40 years of successes and partnerships with the MountainTrue team at the Salvage Station on Wednesday, October 12, 2022! 

About the event

2022 marks MountainTrue’s 40th anniversary, so we’re celebrating in a big way! Join us for this year’s 1982 throwback-themed gathering and enjoy good food, drinks, stories, and company as we celebrate 40 years of protecting the places we share. The online auction includes exciting adventures and experiences donated by Asheville Yoga Center, Navitat, MountainTrue’s riverkeepers, and more. Online bidding will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, September 19, and end at 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 12. Event attendees can place in-person bids until 7:30 p.m. at the October 12 event. All funds raised support MountainTrue’s work in the Southern Blue Ridge. 

We’ll also take time to congratulate and recognize our outstanding Regional Volunteer of the Year Award winners: Hayden Cheek (High Country Region), Don Cooper (Southern Region), Stacey Cassedy (Western Region), Jim Clark (Central Region), as well as this year’s Esther Cunningham Award winner: Grady Nance.
