One Cello, One Planet: Hendersonville

August 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Trinity Presbyterian Church, 900 Blythe street
Hendersonville, NC 28791
+ Google Map
$20 – $35

Join us for One Cello One Planet, a concert series that raises awareness for creation care action. All proceeds go to support the work of the Creation Care Alliance. Judith Glixon, a former Asheville resident and principle cellist with the Asheville Symphony and the Brevard Chamber Orchestra, returns to WNC to present a one-hour solo-cello concert about the urgency of climate change. The music of J. S. Bach (Unaccompanied Suites #1 & 3), Benjamin Britten (final movement of Suite for Cello, Op.72), Ravel and a recent composition by Daniel Crawford will take listeners through an abridged history of the human race (with an emphasis on Western civilization) from its beginning until today. Ticket sales for the concert will support the work that the Creation Care Alliance does to bring practical and hopeful solutions to our congregations and broader secular communities by engaging hearts and minds through inspiration, education, service, and advocacy. The Creation Care Alliance is a program of MountainTrue, WNC's champion for clean waters, resilient forests, and healthy communities.

Much of the city’s unique history is unknown to most Ashevillians, but it spans everything from citizen protests to decades of crushing debt to policies that moved whole communities. While we walk, Chris will also discuss some of the changes Asheville is experiencing today and where this growth could lead us in the future.

Guided Fall Day Hike

October 5 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Pilot Cove Loop Trail
$5 – $15

Join MountainTrue's Ecologist and Public Lands Director, Bob Gale, for a gorgeous and educational hike through Pisgah National Forest. This hike offers breaktaking views of the fall foliage, and if we are lucky, we will catch glimpses of the Monarch Butterfly migration. We will be hiking the Pilot Cove Loop Trail in Pisgah, which is approximately 4 miles long. The trail starts in a lesser known part of Pisgah National Forest and winds upward amongst the brightly colored sourwood and black gum trees. After opening up onto a beautiful rocky outcrop, the trails travels through recently logged forested as well as much older sections of forest. There are some steep inclines on this trail, but Bob will be making frequent stops to rest and interpret the flora and fauna.
