A note from Green River Preserve about the proposed Duke Energy transmission line and what this means for several of our camps:

I was not sure if you knew about the proposed Duke Energy transmission lines that would cut right through Falling Creek Camp and Camp Arrowhead in the Green River Valley. The Green River Valley is home to eight summer camps in Western North Carolina and generations of farmers. (Camps Mondamin, Green Cove, Greystone, Arrowhead, Glen Arden, Falling Creek, Talisman, and Green River Preserve) Not only would the land be impacted, but the herbicides used to maintain the 150 foot swath would contaminate the Green River and flow on down into Lake Summit. This would be a devastating act if were to happen.

Both Falling Creek and our camp have blog posts about it on our website and we also have it on our Facebook page. Duke Energy is taking comments until this Friday. There is a link in the blogs. Please help us spread the word through the camp community to help save this beautiful area of the mountains and preserve these camps.
