Jam in the Trees Supports WildFF

Thanks to the thousands of supporters and incredible lineup of artists, Jam in the Trees was a fantastic weekend experience in Asheville, NC that brought together so many music and nature fans in support of community and forest conservation. We have to thank our incredible Wild Forests and Fauna volunteers  for their efforts all weekend, including Cristyn, Kurt, Jeff, Greg, Kat, Lydia, Chris and Warren. Jam in the Trees was made possible by a number of outstanding community sponsors who support forest protection: Mosaic Realty, Diamond Brand Outdoors, Prestige Subaru, Sanesco Health, Pisgah Brewing Co, and WNCW Listener Powered Radio. Also, an additional thanks is due to all the event staff, attendees and friends of WildFF!

WildFF stepped on the stage both indoors and out, to raise awareness about forest conservation and familiarize people with our ongoing projects. The Big Tree Project is growing in the Appalachians, taking off where our pilot project started in Northern California and Peru. When people are inspired and united about protecting and restoring forests, the movement grows stronger, so be sure to sign up for our newsletter and check in on our progress.
