North Carolina’s Mountain Treasures
Help Protect the Vulnerable Wildlands of the Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests

Help us to Protect These Wild Places

Many of the wildland areas that the first Mountain Treasures identified remained unprotected and thus vulnerable to the loss of the very values that made them invaluable to begin with.

Since 1994, the work of North Carolina conservationists has largely been the work of protecting these special places, often acre by acre, until the forests’ management plan underwent its next revision and provided us a new opportunity to achieve lasting protection for these lands. That time is now.

The U.S. Forest Service is launching a plan revision. As in the 1990s, this online version of North Carolina’s Mountain Treasures examines the status of unprotected wildlands in the Nantahala-Pisgah and is intended as a primary tool to galvanize, guide and facilitate effective public participation in the forest planning process.
