Safeguarding Our Mountain Treasures for the Future

The North Carolina’s Mountain Treasures are 41 areas within our Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests that stand out with special conservation, recreation, scenic, and cultural values. The United States Forest Service is now revising the management plan for our public forests in Western North Carolina—the current evaluation of Potential Wilderness Areas (PWAs) is our opportunity to gain better protection for these valuable places!

Comments on these special places are due by January 5th, 2015. Read More about this portion of the management plan revision process.

This campaign promotes the Mountain Treasure areas within the new forest plan as The Wilderness Society, our partners, and a growing collaboration of groups are working towards a management plan for Nantahala and Pisgah that reflects today’s diverse needs, uses, and values of our National Forests.
