The year 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. In celebration, the US Forest Service and other public and private partners are hosting a large public event in the Wilson Creek Wild and Scenic River watershed on Saturday, November 3, 2018 from 9am to 4pm. The day-long event is intended to recognize the history of Wilson Creek and its designation as a wild and scenic river and provide river-based stewardship and educational activities while bringing attention to today’s needs and opportunities. There will be food and entertainment provided by local vendors and musicians.
The Alliance will have a booth at the event and lead volunteer work on Lower Wilson Ridge Trail from 9am until noon. A guided group ride is also scheduled at 2pm. Meeting location for all activities will be at the Wilson Creek Visitors Center.
Please find a list of all of festival partners and more details on the event here: Event Flier

The trails surrounding Old Fort are some of the best in WNC, and the weekend of Nov 17-18th they are going to get some love. Along with two of our neighboring chapters, we will be helping promote and organize this exciting weekend of work, riding, and camaraderie. Base camp for the event will be on the doorstep of Pisgah at Camp Grier, and the hosts are offering dinner, lodging, and more (like free shuttles to the top of the trails).This will be a great time!
