At the spring kickoff meeting last month, we stirred the pot and brainstormed some effective (and downright cool) ways to be involved in building on the special environmental pluses and needs in Buncombe County. From task forces to volunteering, outreach to buying a “fish” to Save The French Broad River (!), there are lots of ways to get involved. Look forward to seeing you.

Buncombe Chapter Task Forces

At our first meeting, we identified some important opportunities to get involved in – and we’re getting to work on 3 great ones:

  • Protecting Our Urban Forests (non-native invasive species and treetopping)
  • 350 Asheville – 2011 Climate Change Action
  • Dark Skies – light pollution

If you’re interested in getting to work on one of these taskforces, please come meet at 6:00pm before the larger meeting. We need you!
