Panthertown calling volunteers

Volunteers are needed to lend a hand this Saturday, August 25, for the trails of Panthertown Valley, a popular and scenic area of the Nantahala National Forest near Cashiers.

Friends of Panthertown is sponsoring the workday to prune back overgrowth encroaching on trails. The work days are a great way to give back while enjoying our national public lands. Volunteers will enjoy commraderis with other outdoors enthusiasts and do a little hiking in conjunction with the work.

Panthertown Valle is a 6,200-acre recreation prized for its waterfalls, granite domes, hiking and mountain biking trails.

No experience is necessary. Hand tools and instruction are provided. Meet at the Salt Rock Gap trail-head at 9:30 a.m. and finish up by 2:30 p.m. 828.269.4453 or visit www.panthertown.org.
