Visit Birkhead Mountains Wilderness

The 1984 North Carolina Wilderness Act has protected significant natural areas around North Carolina for 30 years.  To celebrate these 30 years the North Carolina Sierra Club Chapter has published http://www.ourwildnc.org to educate our membership of these important areas and their history.

The Central Piedmont Group is encouraging our members to visit these sites.  To help we will briefly feature a different State Wilderness Area at our monthly meetings.  This month’s area is Birkhead Mountains.  You can find directions to Birkhead Mountains Wilderness Area and interesting historical information at the U.S. Forest Services website, http://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/hiking/recarea/?recid=49146&actid=51.
