Fall is here in East Tennessee! This time of year is always a busy one for Foothills as we assist landowners through the process of creating a conservation easement. This agreement ensures that no matter how many seasons change, their land's natural areas and/or agricultural resources will be permanently protected. FLC is poised to have one of our most successful years to date for easement signings! Conservation minded landowners now have until December 31, 2011 to take advantage of a significant tax deduction for donating a voluntary conservation easement. For more information, please contact FLC's offices at 865-681-8326.

A special thank you to the team at River Sports Outfitters, Patagonia and Bill Landry for supporting Foothills Land Conservancy with Pint Night earlier this month. Thank you to everyone that came out to support and 'toast' Foothills. Pint Night is a monthly gathering at River Sports encouraging the community's support of non-profits that focus on land protection, recreation and community outreach. Every designated organization receives a portion of the proceeds from store sales and all beer sales from that night.  DSC05767
