Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy

Your Bio

The Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy is a volunteer-based non-profit organization that works with individuals and local communities to conserve the clean water, unique plant and animal habitat, farmland, and scenic beauty of the Southern Appalachian Mountains. In the last three decades, the conservancy and its 1,500 members have protected almost 40,000 acres, including key sites adjacent to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and in the Highlands of Roan.
