Local environmental knowledge sought

The Coweeta Listening Project will come to Cowee Farmers Market from 3:30 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 10, to collect individual stories about special places in the region and the types of environmental changes that locals have seen over the years. 

The group will give an informational presentation about how climate change is expected to affect southwestern North Carolina. In addition to its typical vendors, the June 10 farmers market will also feature mountain dulcimer and Native American flute music from Dog House Duo and an informational booth from Friends of the Greenway, or FROGS. The market is held at 51 Cowee Creek Road outside of the Macon County Heritage Center at Cowee School off of N.C. 28 in Franklin. This email address is being protected from spambots.
