Learn the latest about the Land Trust for the Little Tennessee, including an update on land conservation initiatives, at noon on Thursday, July 12, at Tartan Hall in Franklin.
The League of Women Voters of Macon County is sponsoring the program by Sharon Taylor, the deputy director of the Land Trust, and Dennis Desmond, stewardship director. The Land Trust is a Franklin-based nonprofit conservation organization. It merged in December 2011 with the Little Tennessee Watershed Association.
Taylor will give an update on the merged organization’s expanded staff and their move to the Little Tennessee River near the Nikwasi Mound. Desmond will discuss the Land Trust’s growing restoration and monitoring program, including its partnership with Southern Appalachian Raptor Research on breeding bird monitoring.
