AC-T: Moog’s Big Briar Cove property conserved

Here’s an excerpt from the Asheville Citizen-Times article:

Bob Moog will be forever remembered for his musical inventions and genius. But now the music icon might also be lauded for his second passion — protecting the great outdoors.

In December, Moog’s widow, Ileana Grams-Moog, donated a conservation easement on 105 acres of their land in the South Turkey Creek community to the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy, to protect forest habitat and clean water resources on the property.

The quiet cove, which sits near 6,000 acres that SAHC has protected in the Sandy Mush Farming Community in Buncombe County, includes Bob Moog’s former home, where he lived full time from 1978-94, and his workshop. Moog died in 2005.
