Land Trust to host Fall Celebration

Written by 

out ltltThe Land Trust for the Little Tennessee (LTLT) will host its 14th annual fall celebration from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Historic Cowee School near Franklin.

 

The program will feature guest speaker Bill Holman, North Carolina director of The Conservation Fund and the former executive director of North Carolina’s Clean Water Management Trust Fund (CWMTF). LTLT will also announce the winner of its 2013 Conservationist of the Year Award.  

The celebration will also include a chili lunch and a variety of activities and exhibits throughout the Cowee School. 

This year also marks the 20th anniversary of the Little Tennessee River Watershed Conference, a gathering of citizens, officials, and groups interested in the health and future of land and water of the Little Tennessee River Watershed. The Conference in 1993 gave rise to the Little Tennessee Watershed Association and the Land Trust for the Little Tennessee, which today are merged as LTLT.

LTLT is a community-based nonprofit dedicated to conserving the waters, forests, farms, and heritage of the Upper Little Tennessee and Hiwassee River Valleys, including the Valley, Tuckasegee and Cheoah Rivers. LTLT works in the six far-western counties of North Carolina and northern Rabun County, Ga.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
