Friday September 27-Sunday September 29: The Ted Snyder Wilderness  Camporee!                                                 
North Carolina Chapter outings leaders have planned a special camping/hiking weekend September 27-29th,  2019 to explore areas proposed for protection in the Appalachian Ranger District of the Pisgah National Forest.   This continues the “Camporee” tradition from the past three years.  This 2019 group base camp outing will provide multiple opportunities to become familiar with some outstanding areas and proposed wilderness additions within this highly popular part of the Forest.  We will be camping in multiple campsites within the Briar Bottom Campground near Mt Mitchell, NC.
 
The weekend is planned as a boots-on-the-ground educational experience to engage Sierra Club members and non-members on the exceptional backcountry value and quality of this area, and how they can engage in the current Pisgah and Nantahala Forest Plan Revision process, the outcome of which could affect how these areas are managed.  There is a good chance that the timing will coincide with the 90-day public comment period on the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)for the Pisgah/Nantahala Forest Plan.

Check-in Friday 3:00-until
