NOC Closed due to Forrest Fires
Copies from the NOC facebook page 11/11/2016:
“The Nantahala Outdoor Center in Wesser, NC is closed to the public until further notice due to the severity and proximity of area forest fires and poor air conditions. Evacuees staying on site will be relocated to other area shelters. We will operate on a limited capacity as long as possible to feed agencies working the fires. Our thoughts are with our employees, community and friends whose homes are threatened.
“We sincerely thank the firefighters, Forest Service, local police, emergency agencies and everyone working around the clock in a dangerous environment to protect our beautiful Nantahala Forest and the community we share. Donations for the firefighting effort should be delivered to the Swain County Rescue Squad building at 111 Bryson Walk in Bryson City, NC.”
