A Grateful Dead cover band celebrates a milestone. Plus, a new book from Asheville native; a celebration for the Hominy Creek Greenway; and more.
Hominy Creek Greenway marks 10 years with outdoor art installation. Plus, an Asheville musician recounts wild outlaw country tales in new book, HART presents The Diary of Anne Frank and the Black Mountain Center for the Arts returns to live theater.
We all need friends, and public lands in Western North Carolina increasingly receive care in the form of “Friends” nonprofit groups. In an era of shrinking federal budgets for parks and forests, these organizations are stepping up to preserve and maintain public spaces.
Residents using Hominy Creek Greenway in recent weeks may have noticed the sudden disappearance of two herds of goats, which had been put to work clearing invasive species such as Japanese Knotwood. The absence of the hardy herbivores is the result of a June 28 attack on one of the animals by an unrestrained dog and raises questions about the proper use of public spaces.
