Save Linville Gorge Wilderness
We are a growing coalition of citizens that see the U.S. Forest Service's prescribed burns in the Linville Gorge Wilderness Area as proposed in the Grandfather Restoration Project as a transgression of the purpose of Wilderness. Save Linville Gorge Wilderness was accepted as a chapter of the Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League in May, 2013. The Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League is a regional, community-based, non-profit environmental organization established in 1984. Our founding principles are earth stewardship, environmental democracy, social justice, and community empowerment.
