Chamber urges locals and visitors to leave no trace and recreate responsibly.
The good news: Business has never been better — it is booming!
The bad news: More visitors means more problems with all kinds of infrastructure, from downtown parking to forest trails.
The Chamber wants to encourage visitors and locals to take care of Blue Ridge, McCaysville and Fannin County. We have become community partners with Leave No Trace and Recreate Responsibly, and we have a campaign going that includes billboards and digital ads. We also have string backpacks being distributed by our lodging partners. The drawstring backpack would be great to take on the trail to carry out trash. We hope to provide enough packs to continue the campaign through October, so we may be reordering sooner than later. Find out more about The Leave No Trace Seven Principles on our website here.
Help us keep Fannin County beautiful by sharing this information with your guests and customers. Email [email protected] if you are a lodging provider and would like to participate.
