This month our guide John Haffner's other employer is having a fundraising month to support Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy (SAHC). As a part of the fundraising month all donations will be matched dollar for dollar! That means you can save a lot of money on these items and help out a great cause. 


Since 1974, SAHC has conserved over 70,000 acres of unique plant and animal habitat, clean water, farmland and scenic beauty of the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee. Much of the land they protect includes property near the Appalachian Trail and the surrounding view shed. John and Blue Ridge Hiking Company have donated a number of books and a Half Day Trip for the fundraising auction. Other items up for grabs include a t-shirt quilt, baby quilt, and 3 Nights in Cabin at Edisto Beach State Park.


We invite you to bid on these auction items by this Friday, March 31st to raise money for this important cause.  The opening bid for a Half-Day Hike is starting at $50, that's less than 30% of the normal cost! The link is here
