NC Blue Ridge Mountains Calendar 2019

Giving Calendar 2019: Protected Places

Our third annual wall calendar for 2019 benefits efforts to conserve and protect the land and water of our North Carolina mountains and foothills. We call it the "Giving Calendar" since 100% of the proceeds will go to two hard working land conservancies in the Asheville area. It will be available starting in August 2018 at a cost of just $10 each. Since all printing and design costs are covered, 100% of your donation will go directly to Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy and Conserving Carolina. We hope to raise $30,000.

Each month, enjoy some of our favorite "Protected Places" that you can visit all year (and read about them). It's a great gift for anyone that loves the North Carolina mountains, so buy an armful! If you have a business or office, they make perfect end-of-year gifts for your clients.

LIMITED SPECIALS for holiday gifts: Order 3 calendars now and get free shipping. Or get a free calendar with a one-year land conservancy membership. Read more below.

Past Calendar Fundraisers
