Healthy forests make the best lemonade!
National Forests are managed for many reasons including outdoor recreation, clean air, and wildlife habitat. One of the initial purposes was to protect our nation’s water resources. An ecologically turbulent history over the past 100+ years in North Georgia has demonstrated a greater need to protect our forest watersheds now and for generations to come.
Join in for an engaging walk & talk with Director, Callie Moore, of the Hiwassee River Watershed Coalition and Krista Robb, of the Cradle of Forestry. Your water journey starts with scenic views atop Brasstown Bald where you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the Hiwassee watershed. You’ll learn about modern day water conservation efforts, as well as the science and history of the National Forest surrounding Georgia’s highest point. As we walk like water trickling down the mountain side, the program will end with a visit to the sites spring fed water system and a refreshing glass of mountain top lemonade. Come along and Tap into Your Forest!
Local non-profit, Hiwassee River Watershed Coalition, works collaboratively with landowners, governments, schools, and businesses to understand and address threats to our water resources. They maintain extensive water quality sampling of our local waterways and conduct educational programs for all ages.
