For 30 years, the Western North Carolina Alliance has been a trusted community partner, marshaling grassroots support to keep our forests healthy, our air and water clean, and our communities vibrant.

Utilizing a combination of policy advocacy, scientific research, and community collaboration, the Alliance and its chapters throughout Western North Carolina unleash the power of citizens’ voices to protect the natural heritage of our region so that people and the environment can thrive.

The  Alliance offers opportunities to hike with experts, volunteer to monitor streams, maintain our amazing Paddle Trail along the French Broad River, or clear trails in the national forest, just to name a few. Have fun with us, learn more about the incredible natural treasures of our region, and make a difference in your community — join WNCA today!
