Forest Service to open “green” ranger station

Written by 

A new, environmentally friendly ranger office will be opening in Mars Hill in Madison County Nov. 13 to serve the public. The office will host staff from the Appalachian Ranger District in the Pisgah National Forest.

The existing district office located in Burnsville will close Nov. 5. All services will be moved to the new Mars Hill office at that time. The Forest Service plans to sell the office in Burnsville. 

The Forest Service designed the facility to meet standards required by the United States Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification. Additional environmentally friendly design elements were included in the building that may allow it to achieve the higher gold-level certification. The Forest Service will apply for LEED certification in the coming months.

The address of the new facility is 632 Manor Road, Mars Hill, located just passed Madison Manor. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or www.fs.usda.gov/nfsnc

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
