WOW! We have been blown away at the success generated from our license plate sales. As you purchase and renew your Pisgah Conservancy license plate, you are providing a sustainable source of operating revenue needed for us to continue our work. The plates have been so popular that we have heard news that a few license plate agencies run out from time to time. To be safe, order your plate online by clicking here. You can avoid the crowds and be assured of getting a TPC plate for your car or truck.

PISGAH FOREST, N.C., January 15, 2019: The National Forest Foundation has awarded a $22,000 grant through its 2019 Treasured Landscapes, Unforgettable Experiences Program to The Pisgah Conservancy for maintenance work on the Art Loeb, Exercise, and Estatoe Trails on the Pisgah Ranger District. The trail project will focus on bridge and boardwalk repairs to highly-accessible, heavily-used trails on the Pisgah, including decking repairs on the Art Loeb’s Davidson River Bridge and replacing a footbridge on the Exercise Trail. The grant will also help tackle boardwalk repairs on the Estatoe Trail and gravel placement needed on the Estatoe and Exercise Trails.
Davis Wax, Trail Specialist for The Pisgah Conservancy, stated, “We are excited to receive this grant to complete maintenance work on a number of important gateway trails into Pisgah. These three trails get some of the most traffic in the Forest, and fixing infrastructure like bridges and boardwalk not only will make the trails more enjoyable, it will make them safer, too.” The award period for the grant runs until mid-June 2019, and The Pisgah Conservancy, the Forest Service, and volunteers will collaborate to help complete the individual projects. The first project will be to replace the Davidson River Bridge decking.
