MountainTrue is an environmental advocacy organization serving the Southern Blue Ridge with four regional offices and home to four Riverkeeper programs. The organization champions resilient forests, clean waters and healthy communities in the Southern Blue Ridge. Hill’s presentation will focus on the ecology of the Watauga River, its biodiversity, threats and solutions.
