  • a Public Lands Team hard at work ensuring a management plan for the Nantahala-Pisgah National Forests that protects our natural carbon sinks, reduces habitat destruction, and promotes biodiversity;
  • a Land-Use Team that promotes smart growth and community planning so that our continued growth doesn’t come at the expense of our environment; and
