North Carolina Native Plant Society Meeting, July 12
Using his knowledge of the chemical and biological fields, Bob will discuss selected flora and fauna of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Additionally, he will discuss some plants that have medicinal properties and Native Americans’ considerations in this area.
Bob Cantu’s career in the Chemical Industry spanned 44 years and took him from Canada, thru Mexico, Central America, South America, Europe and the U.S. While working in that industry, he kept abreast of astronomy and science as it relates to flora & fauna specifically of the Appalachian Mountains. For special information and questions, he has corresponded with some of the important astrophysicists, biologists, and naturalists in the U.S.
He is currently the naturalist for the Blue Ridge Hiking Club and for the Grandfather Mountain Parks and Recreation, and assists the Grandfather Mountain Stewardship as a volunteer in different aspects. He is the author of the book Flipped, and has published scientific articles in several magazines.
Another great program- don’t miss it.
Blue Ridge Craft Trails Bring Listening Session to Blowing Rock
Blowing Rock will play host to the first in a series of listening sessions to help create a new craft trail across our mountains.
The Blue Ridge National Heritage Area seeks ideas and suggestions to develop the Blue Ridge Craft Trails over the next few years. People interested in Western North Carolina’s rich craft heritage are invited to attend the session 2-4 p.m. July 13 at the Blowing Rock Art & History Museum, 159 Chestnut St., Blowing Rock.
The Blue Ridge National Heritage Area’s latest trail initiative will encourage cultural tourism and strengthen rural economies by promoting the region’s many craft artists, craft schools, local arts businesses and venues. The online project promises to link traditional and contemporary artisans with more visitors to studios and galleries.
Seven listening sessions have been scheduled across the region. Craft artists, gallery owners, arts groups, businesses and anyone interested are invited to attend and offer their comments. Other meetings will be held 2-4 p.m. on the following dates and locations:
- July 18 – Museum of the Cherokee Indian, Cherokee
- August 1 – Tryon Arts & Crafts, Tryon
- August 3 – Yadkin Valley Cultural Arts Center, Yadkinville
- August 8 – John C. Campbell Folk School, Brasstown
- August 24 – Penland School of Crafts, Penland
- August 31 – Southern Highland Craft Guild, Folk Art Center, Asheville
“We envision the Blue Ridge Craft Trails of Western North Carolina as an online roadmap to guide visitors through our rich craft heritage and connect personally with artisans in our mountain communities,” said Angie Chandler, executive director of the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area.
“We’re building on the pioneering work of HandMade In America in the 1990s, which started the original Craft Heritage Trails of WNC. We want to update that guide for the Internet age and provide new opportunities for the next generation of crafters, collectors and visitors,” Chandler said.
The professional craft industry generates more than $206 million in annual business across 25 Western North Carolina counties, according to a 2008 economic study.
The Blue Ridge Craft Trails project is funded with a $90,000 grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission and contributions from the North Carolina Arts Council and WNC Community Foundation.
To register for a specific meeting, go to the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area website at www.blueridgeheritage.com and click on the link on the homepage, or call Amy Hollifield at 298-5330, ext. 303.
Authorized by Congress in 2003, the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area covers 25 Western North Carolina counties, and remains the only regional organization dedicated to the stewardship of five Appalachian cultural legacies – craft, music, natural beauty, agriculture and Cherokee heritage.
