About me 
Based in Asheville, NC, I am TU's Southeast Conservation Coordinator. Covering the Southern Appalachian Mountains, I work on land conservation, aquatic passage, restoration and advocacy in partnership with chapters and councils, as well as land trusts and state agencies. I am a member of the Little Tennessee River Native Fish Conservation Area Steering Committee, the Nantahala-Pisgah Forest Planning Collaborative, and several other regional and local conservation initiatives. Please feel free to get in touch with questions, comments and projects ideas. If I can't personally help, I'll put you in touch with the person who can. dhearne@tu.org or (828) 398-0177 office.
