Beer Series with the Wedge Brewing

Despite the unusual times we find ourselves in, there is still trash collecting in our river. We hope that as many folks as possible can help us clean up the French Broad, but know that we can't all be on the river together. We are offering a limited capacity in person clean up as well as a virtual clean up with the Wedge on August 1st. There are prizes from ENO for the most interesting finds for both virtual and in-person participants!

Virtual Green Drinks – August

August 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Webinar–online

Virtual Hendersonville Green Drinks welcomes Tony Dunn, a former USFS Fire Behavior Analyst and a Camp Fire survivor. On November 8, 2018, a wildfire swept through the mountain town of Paradise, CA. It was the most destructive fire in California history and caused the permanent dislocation of nearly 50,000 people, most of them elderly and financially disadvantaged. Tony Dunn outlines how climate change contributed to the fire and how climate-driven disasters like the Camp Fire disproportionately impact vulnerable communities and their ability to recover.

We're teaming up with Flying Bikes Tours to take out a fleet of electric bikes. We will still pass through downtown, where Chris will share his extensive knowledge about Asheville's urban core, including stories of how redlining has shaped our city and what the future could hold for Asheville. With the bikes, we will expand our range, pedaling through the River Arts District and the Southside, experiencing the highlights (and lowlights) of Asheville's bike infrastructure. We will stop frequently to hear from Chris about the history of development in these areas and what the future might look like in these places.
