THIS IS THE FOREST PRIMEVAL

A Wild Gem In The Southern Appalachians

Half a million acres of mountainous forest make up Western North Carolina's Pisgah National Forest. Nearby soars Mount Mitchell, at 6,683 feet the highest point east of the Mississippi. Next door, in the Nantahala Forest, world-class whitewater rivers rage through ancient cataracts.

Logging, development and invasive species are all taking their toll on this unique example of our eastern natural heritage. Also, some in Congress are working to advance a bill that would force the forest service to prioritize logging ahead of wildlife protection, outdoor recreation, and environmental education.
