Sunny summer days make the perfect backdrop for outdoor adventures in the mountains you love. National Trails Day falls on the first Saturday in June – along with Land Trust Day! Conservation land trusts like Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy play a critical role in protecting and managing land and water resources that benefit you and millions of people in the Southeast. We are so grateful to local businesses who have stepped up to pledge matching gifts and other ways to support SAHC on Land Trust Day – Saturday, June 5 – and throughout the entire month of June!
Mast General Store in Asheville and Waynesville continue to support SAHC’s land, water, and farmland conservation efforts as a Land Trust Day sponsor. These two Mast General Store locations will donate 20% of proceeds from sales on Saturday, June 5 to Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy. PLUS – this year they are running a special “Round-Up” campaign for conservation from June 1st through 6th. Shoppers have the opportunity to ’round up’ their purchase total to the dollar when checking out, and the Asheville and Waynesville locations of Mast General Store will donate those ’round up’ proceeds to SAHC, too.
Second Gear in Asheville, NC is donating 1% of proceeds from all sales during the month of June to Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy – as their Nonprofit Partner of the Month.
