Join the Hemlock Restoration Initiative, MountainTrue, American Whitewater, and the NC Wildlife Resources Commission as the Paddlers Hemlock Health Action Taskforce (PHHAT) treats hemlocks along the Green River on Sunday, July 28th! See the flyer below for more information. For questions about the day, contact Regina Goldkuhl at or (828) 692-0385 x1001.

This collaboration between the Hemlock Restoration Initiative, American Whitewater, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, and MountainTrue utilizes expert paddlers to treat trees along the Green River.  By following a custom protocol to ensure safety and protect water quality, this group has enabled us to chemically protect many trees that can be accessed from the river and would likely not be otherwise treated due to the difficulty of accessing them by land.
