The Appalachian Women’s Museum has kicked off its first fundraiser since reaching an agreement with the Town of Dillsboro to restore and preserve the 1908 Farmhouse at the Monteith Farmstead.
Supporters can purchase “Coal for the Holidays” from Nancy Tut’s, HopBerry, and Bradley’s in Dillsboro, or It’s By Nature, the Chamber of Commerce, and Signature Brew in Sylva. Contributions can also be made at www.appwm.org.
Neotropical migrants can be flashy things — think scarlet tanager, Baltimore oriole, rose-breasted grosbeak or those tiny butterflies of the bird world like American redstart, blackburnian warbler, hooded warbler and northern parula, just to name a few. And often when we strike out in search of these colorful creatures we go to places like the Blue Ridge Parkway, where it is open and there is good light so we can see the amazing color. But sometimes beige is cool.
