The Land Trust for the Little Tennessee’s annual fall celebration will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, in Rainbow Springs along the Upper Nantahala River.
The day includes live music, activities for kids, cross-cut saw and fly-fishing demonstrations, a hay ride, nature walk, native and mountain cultural demonstrations, and the conservation award presentation.
All activities are free; including a meal of chili, hotdogs and dessert.
From Franklin take U.S. 64 west toward Hayesville for 13 miles. Take the second driveway on the left after you pass the intersection with Old 64 (the road that goes to Standing Indian Campground). Look for signs to the event.
Since 1999 LTLT has helped conserve over 10,000 acres of land, including 35 miles of Little Tennessee River frontage, multiple headwater streams in the Balsam, Cowee and Nantahala Mountains, and a number of family farms including the largest working farm in North Carolina west of Asheville.
