Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy’s annual June Jamboree is a celebration of land protection and resource management in the stunning Highlands of Roan. This year, we continue our annual celebration of outdoor recreation and conservation in the Roan Highlands, along with other SAHC focus areas, with a week-long schedule of virtual events as well as a month-long challenge to get involved in citizen-science! Join us for one or all of these events. Can’t make it? All events will be recorded and shared on our YouTube channel.
Straddling the Tennessee and North Carolina border, the tight cluster of peaks and ridges known as the Roan Massif is a showcase of globally significant biological diversity, punctuated by Appalachian grassy balds, rhododendron gardens, high-elevation rock outcrops, southern Appalachian bogs, and rich spruce-fir forests. The Roan’s ecosystems contain one of the richest repositories of temperate zone biodiversity on Earth.
June is Conservation Month!
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!
