In 2012, we celebrated our fifteenth year of working to protect the land, water, air and communities in central and southern Appalachia.

Thanks to so many who made our anniversary celebration so special. From the artists who donated their talent to the many people who drove from all corners of the region to join us, we thank you.

If you were unable to join us in Charlottesville, or would like to relive the experience, please enjoy the highlights below and consider making a gift to support our continued work to protect central and southern Appalachian region.
