The Western North Carolina Alliance is inviting the community to join us for the “Renewing Our Roots” spring gathering, to honor and celebrate WNCA’s founding in Macon County.
The event will be April 14 in Franklin.
Several free family-friendly activities will be offered throughout the day, culminating in a barbecue dinner and live music celebration at the Memorial United Methodist Church where WNCA’s founder, Esther Cunningham, was a member.
Mrs. Cunningham, a Macon County native, was 64 years old when she founded the Alliance in 1982. It is the only grassroots environmental advocacy focused solely on conserving Western North Carolina’s natural heritage.
