Coffee Hour with MountainTrue: Ancient Forests of the Blue Ridge

Wrong Way River Lodge & Cabins 9 Midnight Drive, Asheville, United States

The original forests of the Blue Ridge had trees of all ages and sizes. Large, old trees were abundant. The onslaught of industrial logging removed most of those forests, but due to the ruggedness of our mountains and sustained conservation over generations, at least 3% of the Southern Blue Ridge is in old-growth condition. Josh Kelly has spent years documenting and protecting old-growth forests on public land. Josh will take you on a 45 minute, coffee inspired, exploration of our region's old-growth forests, including where to find them, how to recognize them, and the deep values they represent.

Lunch and Learn with MountainTrue: Single-Use Plastics in Asheville, NC

Green Sage Cafe 633A Merrimon Ave, Asheville, NC

Want to learn what MountainTrue has been doing to address single-use plastics and how you can help? Join us for a lunch and learn, hosted by MountainTrue and Green Sage Cafe.

We see them all over the road, clogging storm drains, and in the river, but plastics are more than just a trash issue. Single-use plastics are items of convenience, most of which are unrecyclable, that we may use for a few minutes before throwing them out. These disposable items wreak havoc on the environment but also pose serious threats to our health, our landfills, and the most vulnerable populations among us.
