Map This Location

Here are some of our favorite birding (and other) links:

Birding Links

Explore North Carolina's Birding Trail from the mountains to the coast:     http://ncbirdingtrail.org/

Like to go birding both in Western north Carolina and overseas? If so, we heartily support Ventures Birding Tours  www.birdventures.com

Another great spot in the NC Mountains is Chimney Rock Park. Yes, I know that it can get a bit crowded in the summer and over holiday weekends, so get there early and during the week, if you can. Simon leads about 6 birdwalks a year in the park: www.chimneyrockpark.com

We have our own chapter of the National Audubon Society here in WNC- the Elisha Mitchell Audubon Society. They offer monthly birdwalks and programs (see our monthly calendars) and run the wonderful Beaver Lake Bird Sanctuary)- How about paying your dues and joining us? http://emasnc.org/

 

Natural History

The Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE) in Tryon, NC is a wonderful 380 nature education and recreation center set in rolling countryside and rich woodlands. Enjoy the hiking trails throughout the year. Information at http://www.fence.org/

Another great local place is the North Carolina Arboretum. With extensive planted and natural grounds and a world class exhibit area, it's a must visit place when you visit Asheville (or even if you live here in WNC!) http://ncarboretum.org/ 

 

Great Places to Stay

How about an escape to the Mountains of WNC?

Check out our friends at Snowbird Mountain Lodge. It's the perfect place for a relaxing get-away to watch birds, hike, look for wildflowers or just relax and do nothing....and yes, we have done so many times. www.snowbirdlodge.com

Nestled in the middle of the Pisgah National Forest is The Inn on Mill CreekA beautiful B&B with plenty of birds like the Indigo Bunting, Carolina Chickadee, Swainson's Warbler, and Whip-Poor-Will. They are one of the few private properties on the North Carolina Birding Trail, Mountain Region. http://www.innonmillcreek.com/

Another great option is the Orchard Inn, a historic bed and breakfast built in 1926 that also offers charming cottages to guests. http://www.orchardinn.com/

 

Good Local Folks

Another great local business is our friends over at  www.oldenglishcars.com  If you have an English car that needs some work, take it to Tony and Jennie.

Some folks are just so talented- if you need any hand painted tiles or wrought iron, check out our friends at Salud Forge in Tryon, NC. Bill and Kathleen own and operate a beautiful forge and gallery in Tryon.  Check out their website at http://www.saludaforge.com/ or stop by our store as we have several of their pieces in stock.

 

If you like local wildlife art, check out Fran Brook's website.  www.artistnannie.com  - we sell her notecards in the store, and also have several originals on the wall. (PS: The meadowlark is beautiful!!)
