Appalachian Voices hosts Open House Nov. 19
On Thursday, Nov. 19, the community is invited to Appalachian Voices to meet the staff and learn about environmental issues in Appalachia.
The Appalachian Voices' Autumn Open House, which runs from 5:30 to 8 p.m., will feature live music, light refreshments and a brief overview of the organization's programs.
Appalachian Voices is a regional non-profit organization that brings people together to solve environmental problems having the greatest impact on the central and southern Appalachian Mountains.
Its main focuses have included ending mountaintop removal coal mining, cleaning up air pollution, protecting the Upper Watauga River and other waterways from industrial pollution, and helping citizens sustainably manage their forestlands.
Appalachian Voices recently received national recognition from Google Earth and GOOD Magazine for its work on iLoveMountains.org, a Web site the organization helped create to end mountaintop removal coal mining.
Appalachian Voices' main office is located at 191 Howard St. in downtown Boone, next to Char restaurant.
