NC Mountains Calendar 2019

Giving Calendar 2019: Protected Places

Our third annual wall calendar in 2019 will benefit efforts to conserve and protect the natural beauty 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 conservanices 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. More details coming soon!
