Mission Statement

MountainTrue’s board, volunteers and professional staff focus on a core set of issues across 23 counties of Western North Carolina: sensible land use, restoring public forests, protecting water quality and promoting clean energy - all of which have a high impact on the environmental health and long-term prosperity of our region. MountainTrue is the home of the French Broad Riverkeeper, the primary protector and defender of the French Broad River watershed.

Description

MountainTrue is the result of a merger of Environmental and Conservation Organization (based in Henderson County, founded in 1987), Jackson-Macon Conservation Alliance (based in Macon County, founded in 2000) and Western North Carolina Alliance (based in Buncombe County, founded in 1982). MountainTrue became an official non-profit in January 2015, and was formed with three specific goals:

  • - To have a stronger influence on policy at all levels of government, through increased local presence;
  • - To build a stronger organization and increase our geographic reach;
  • - And to strengthen our grassroots engagement and involve a broader spectrum of the population.
