Forest Plan Panel Discussion: Recreation

June 16, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

On June 16, MountainTrue will host an online panel discussion via Zoom during which our staff and guest speakers will explore issues of interest in the draft management plan for the Nantahala-Pisgah National Forests for recreation users such as mountain bikers, horseback riders, hikers, and paddlers. The speakers will discuss the plan alternatives and what they hope will end up in the final management plan. Please register in advance to submit questions for our panelists beforehand. We will also leave time during the session for live Q&A with the audience using the chat feature.

Featured panelists:

  • Julie White, Representative of the Southern Off-Road Mountain Bicycle Association (SORBA)
  • Deirdre Perot, Public Lands Representative of the Back Country Horsemen of North Carolina
  • Mike Reardon, Executive Director of the Carolina Climbers Coalition
  • Kevin Colburn, National Stewardship Director for American Whitewater

This event is a Zoom Webinar, which is a little different from a regular Zoom meeting. When you join the event, you will be muted and your video will be turned off. You’ll only be able to see the speakers and moderator, though you will be able to submit typed questions through the Q&A panel.
