Sales strong for Smokies plates

Written by 

Sales of North Carolina Friends of the Smokies license plates brought in $118,240 to support the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the second quarter of 2016.

In 2015, plate sales in North Carolina generated more than $438,000, with sales raising more than $4.3 million since the program launched in 1999. Proceeds fund critical projects on the North Carolina side of the park, including ginseng protection, hiring Appalachian Trail Ridgerunners and the Parks as Classrooms program. 

Plates cost $30, with $20 of that going directly to the North Carolina Smokies, and can be purchased independently of plate expiration dates.
