Your 2019 Calendar purchase helps protect places we love and cherish.
This stunning 2019 calendar benefits work to conserve and protect the land and water resources of the Blue Ridge mountains and foothills. Featuring 12 special places — each protected by either Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy or Conserving Carolina — it’s called the “Giving Calendar” because all proceeds from calendar purchases directly support conservation efforts by these land trusts.
Each month, enjoy some of our favorite “Protect Places” in the mountains of WNC that you can visit throughout the year.
BONUS: Each calendar contains a $10 coupon for Diamond Brand Outdoors & Frugal Backpacker. So, if you buy the calendar for $10, you’ll get your money back when shopping for outdoor gear. It’s a win-win!

How does the “Giving Calendar” support our work?
RomanticAsheville.com Travel Guide has graciously covered all the printing and design costs, so 100% of your donation will go directly to Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy, helping to protect the mountains, forests, farms, and streams you love!
Plus, sharing the stories and photos in the calendar will help raise awareness about impact of land and water conservation. Learn how local land trusts make it possible for you to experience these protected places.
“I was first made aware of SAHC from my love of the Roan Mountain area,” says Mark File of RomanticAsheville.com Travel Guide. “Then I discovered that they were integral in protecting many other favorite hiking spots that I recommend to readers. So the calendar is a small way to say thank you and spread the news of their heroic work to others.”
For more than four decades, SAHC has led efforts to protect clean water sources, places for people to enjoy outdoor recreation, habitat for rare native plants and animals, and scenic beauty enjoyed from national trails and parks — including the Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and Appalachian National Scenic Trail. Read more about our ongoing efforts to protect, steward and connect people with the special places you need and cherish — or view an interactive map of our conservation focus areas.
