Paddle-n-Plant Workday

February 2 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
MountainTrue — Asheville, 29 North Market Street
Asheville, NC 28801 United States

The French Broad Riverkeeper and MountainTrue are combating sediment erosion in our local waterways. Sediment is a major polluter in our river basin, clogging fish and aquatic habitats, increasing water temperatures, and transporting toxic substances. We are helping to reduce the amount of sediment that flows into our rivers by planting live-stakes along eroding riverbanks. These stakes will grow into trees that will stabilize the sides of the rivers and creeks where we plant them, and will reduce the overall amount of sediment getting into the river. So, come hop in a boat and help us reduce erosion along our local rivers!

Soapstone Ridge Ash Hike

February 9 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Ecusta Brewing, 49 Pisgah Hwy #3
Pisgah Forest, NC 28768
+ Google Map

Do you to want help Save Pisgah’s Ashes? Then come learn about then first! Join MountainTrue’s Field Biologist, Josh Kelly, and Forest Keeper, Rhys Burns, on a beautiful and educational hike through one of our surviving local ash tree groves. Our ash trees are under threat from the invasive Emerald Ash Borer that has decimated the ash communities of WNC. Soapstone Ridge is home to one of the ash communities that MountainTrue has worked to save. The hike is an easy, 2-mile out and back, with some moderate elevation change towards the end, making this a great hike for families or folks who don’t want to spend the whole day outdoors. We will make plenty of stops along the way to talk about the Emerald Ash Borer, the ash tree treatment process, and anything else of interest we stumble across! We hope you’ll come away inspired to help us Save Pisgah’s Ashes, or at least join us for a beer afterwards at Ecusta Brewing for an information session about the Save Pisgah’s Ashes campaign.
