Today’s Our Birthday! June 10


On this date in 1974, the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy was officially incorporated as a non-profit land trust. So, it’s our ‘birthday!’ We are so excited to turn 40! — And looking back over the past four decades, we know we have a lot of living to celebrate. What are some of your favorite memories/experiences with the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy?

In the spirit of celebration, our staff and AmeriCorps associates took a walk outside to say “Cheers to all of us!” We’re ‘toasting’ SAHC with some of that clean mountain water we work so hard to protect. Thanks to the passion and vision of our members, Trustees, friends, and followers over the years, we’ve been able to accomplish some incredible things. Here’s to 40 years of conservation, and many more to come!

    Happy Birthday !

    This year long celebration is so appropriate as SAHC was indeed “conceived” in the vision of one man, Stan Murray, had a long gestation period nurtured by the ATC, was “born” actually “delivered” by a small group who caught the vision and implemented the structuring of the fledgling Conservancy.

    It is said that from a tiny acorn grows the mighty oak. And so the tiny group has grown ,through the efforts of so many, into the wonderfully effective, highly professional and respected Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy!

    Thanks to our dedicated Staff and the past and present Trustees who continue to help SAHC grow both in scope and effectiveness ! This milestone could only have been reached with your efforts ! And many more lie ahead.
