The New River is our treasure

Citizens and taxpayers of Ashe County, we must protect our valuable God given asset and national treasure, the New River. It is only one of two rivers in the world to flow northward. We are so lucky to have it in Ashe County. we swim in it, picnic alongside it, paint it, admire it, and of course fish in it.

If we allow any type of obstruction to the New River, we will regret it, and there will be no turning back after the damage is done. The New River is ours. Let’s take a stand to save it.
