North Carolina Land Preserved

The Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy has recently purchased a 430 acre tract in the Roan Highlands in Avery County, NC that is "near the Appalachian Trail and the Pisgah National Forest and includes a high altitude ridge more than 5,000 feet in elevation," according to an article by Paul Clark in the 18 October 2007 Asheville Citizen-Times titled "Conservation partnership protects part of Highlands of Roan."

The "pristine" Powdermill tract had been threatened with development.
