I encourage you to learn more about the good work of the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy. "The mission of the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy is to protect the world's oldest mountains for the benefit of present and future generations. To this end, our volunteer-based organization works with individuals and local communities to identify, preserve, and manage the region's important lands."
