Our mission is to protect the forest, wildlife, and watersheds of our National Forest and surrounding communities for present and future generations. We are hikers, students, teachers, farmers, business people, nature lovers, and members of the local community who are brought together by our desire to promote the appreciation, understanding, and protection of our environment.
Our work focuses specifically on High Knob, a 4,223 foot mountain which stretches into three counties and is at the heart of the Clinch Valley Bioreserve, a 2,200 square mile area that has been designated by The Nature Conservancy as one of the Last Great Places in the World. This region in the extreme southwestern tip of Virginia is home to more rare and endangered aquatic and botanical species than any other region in the continental United States.
