The Appalachian Voice is a free bi-monthly newspaper that has covered environmental, outdoor, and cultural news in the Appalachian mountains since 1996. We provide thorough and well-researched journalisic news coverage to fit a niche not often covered by standard news media, and deliver this to a broad spectrum of readers in locations that span seven states.
The Appalachian Voice newspaper was first published in the winter of 1996, as a publication of the Sierra Club Southern Appalachian Highlands Ecoregion Task Force. A year later, the club grew into the environmental organization Appalachian Voices, which has continued the publication of The Voice to today.
The mission of The Appalachian Voice is to provide factual information about environmental concerns in our region, as well as to enlighten and educate the public about the beauty and value of our mountain region.
