May 2016: Get Lost for a Cause with the Blue Ridge Conservancy
This month, Lost Province is teaming up with the Blue Ridge Conservancy to support their mission of “working with willing landowners and local communities to permanently protect land and water resources with agricultural, ecological, cultural, recreational, and scenic value in Northwest North Carolina.”
Blue Ridge Conservancy (BRC) has protected over 18,800 acres in Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Mitchell, Watauga, Wilkes and Yancey Counties. In addition to protecting working farmland, BRC’s efforts have resulted in the creation of state natural areas like Beech Creek Bog, Bear Paw State Natural Area and Bullhead Mountain. BRC continues to help Elk Knob State park expand its borders and established Pond Mountain Game Land in Ashe County. More information about Blue Ridge Conservancy is available at www.blueridgeconservancy.org.
This month, we asked the Blue Ridge Conservancy to rename one of our beers. A portion of all beer sales from the “Liquid Land Saver” Honey Brown Ale will go back to the Blue Ridge Conservancy. Additionally, 10% of all sales from the May 17th Blue Ridge Conservancy fundraiser at Lost Province will go to support their work!
