Hall Mountain Celebration May 31

May 31, 2013
11:00 amto2:00 pm

Join us to celebrate the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians receiving ownership of the important Hall Mountain tract overlooking the historic Cowee Mound. This Land Trust for the Little Tennessee project began in 2005, and The Wilderness Society was instrumental in securing the project’s funding through the newly formed USDA Forest Service Community Forest and Open Space Conservation Program. This project was one of only 10 selected from across the country for this program, which will keep this tract, the viewshed of the Cowee Mound, in forest use.

The Tribe plans to create a scenic hiking trail system through the tract that will exhibit uses of natural resources traditionally used by the Cherokee and will serve as an educational resource for the public, regional schools and youth organizations.

Date: Friday, May 31, 2013

Time: Program at 11:00am, Lunch at noon

The event will be held 7.5 miles north of Franklin, NC at 7339 Bryson City Rd. In case of rain the event will be held at the historic Cowee School.
