VANDALISM, Uwharrie River Picnic Area

Today I CRIED OUT for the trees that were VANDALIZED and severely damaged down at our privately owned picnic area at Ledger Shoals on the Uwharrie River. Within the last two weeks, the ‘WOW’ Man Tree with the man’s face was nearly destroyed by someone deeply carving their initials and words into the sapwood layer. We're so saddened and I’m trying not to be infuriated. If you know of anyone with the initials of T over T and ML over RM, or who would have carved the abbreviations of ‘20 3KM PIG JR, PLEASE help us to educate them about ‘Leaving NO Trace’. That means ‘preserve the past, Leave rocks, plants, trees, and other objects as you find them’. No one wants to see other’s name, graffiti or trash in a beautiful Outdoor Setting. It attracts others to do the same, and soon the area is like a graffiti slum, and the trees are dead. It’s really disrespectful and illegal to damage other folk’s property by defacing these beautiful Giants of Nature. Other trees were hacked, which allows disease to enter, but the WOW Man Tree is severely damaged.
We’ve always allowed river users to come ashore here, picnic, and rest. All we ask is that folks do NO damage, and take their trash. Over the years, most respect this request. This type of act makes me want to put up NO TRESPASSING SIGNS and fence it off from any river use. One careless, unthoughtful action has a far outreaching impact. To Those who respectfully enjoy the privilege of enjoying this area, please help us to keep an eye out for those who have no regard for the environment or others. If you know any of these parties, tell them they can easily contact us and we will work with them in an educational and restorative mode to try and save the trees. The law enforcement side is an avenue, but I’d much rather help to create a knowledgeable friend than a court action. God entrusts us to preserve His beautiful landscapes, PLEASE help us by Leaving No Trace of your adventure in the out of doors. Please SHARE, and folks can FB message us with info. fess up, or try to help us save these 100 year https://photos.app.goo.gl/jj3wa8K7yfxPmWPh6

U.S. Forest Service - National Forests in North Carolina

Badin Lake Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Trail System on the Uwharrie National Forest will remain closed through May 31. This federal agency operating decision was based on regional data and best available information regarding local health and safety.

We are working with our state and local partners as we determine the best path forward to safely reopen the trail system as local conditions warrant. The Forest Service's highest priority is ensuring the safety of the public and our employees on national forest system lands while supporting mission critical functions.

Forest Service officials are regularly evaluating the situation and working with local communities on phased plans to reopen sites and facilities as soon as this can be accomplished safely.

We are looking forward to again seeing these sites filled with the people from the communities we serve, enjoying the full benefits their national forests have to offer.

For more information please contact the Uwharrie Ranger District at (910) 576-6391.

Kayaking Uwharrie River, NC

River level was perfect and I think we know where those beautiful shoals are on the Uwharrie River with the slate stone picnic tables. I'll guarantee you they did not fall from the sky:) BTW, that area is called Ledger Shoals on the Uwharrie and the picnic area is part of the Grand Overland District.

Brian and I joined Anthony Barbour as well as Guy Spiher and his son Evan on a kayak run down the Uwharrie River. We put in at Low Water Bridge and took out ...

***By Governor Cooper's Executive Order regarding COVID-19, the 2020 Spring Uwharrie Outdoor Summit (formally the Spring OHV Jamboree) has been cancelled.***

The Governor's Statement reads: "In addition to closing schools, the Executive Order prohibits mass gatherings that bring together more than 100 people in a single room or space, such as an auditorium, stadium, arena, large conference room, meeting hall, theater, or other confined indoor or outdoor space, including parades, fairs and festivals. Violations of the order are punishable as a Class 2 misdemeanor."

Although we are sad to have to postpone this event, our compliance is mandatory. Thank you to all the vendors, clubs, and community members who were ready and excited to celebrate the trail openings with us. We look forward to next year's event and hope to see everyone there.

For all attending the 9th Annual Uwharrie Veterans Day Ride we need a count of open seats. We have 60 veterans and their families signed up to join us this year as ride-a-longs and many more on a wait list. This is a great situation to be in. However, we'd like to inform more veterans that they can join us. We have until noon on Thursday to figure out how many open seats we have.

Please let us know how many open seats you have so that we can get as many veterans to join us as possible.

Looking forward to seeing all you great Americans and patriots Saturday!

Midnight Mom Devotional

Midnight Mom Devotional

Tonight we pray for the momma who feels like there is no physical way to get it all done. Lord, each day her hours fill up before she gets everything crossed off her list. Night comes and she looks around and she sees just how much is waiting for her tomorrow. Lord, it can feel so discouraging to try your hardest and feel like there is some area that comes up short. Tonight we ask You to come close to this momma. Speak to her like a friend and remind her that the two of you will face whatever is waiting tomorrow together. Settle every anxious thought and fill her with hope. We ask in Jesus’s name, Amen.

If you’re at Uwharrie today please be on the lookout for these pups. They belong to a Veteran and one is a service dog.

We're retired as NPS Rangers, but our appreciate for those who served and are serving to preserve our natural resources for future generations and public use is an overwhelming appreciation and honor. 3 of our fellow officers, that we actually worked along side have given their lives in protection of the resources, "Lord we honor them and continue to pray for their families".

"If a trail is to be blazed, it's "send a ranger." - Oh, Ranger!

It's #WorldRangerDay! World Ranger Day honors rangers around the world who work to preserve and protect important natural and cultural places. It's also a day to remember and commemorate those who have lost their lives serving on the front line protecting the environment around them. Rangers work under varying conditions and in varying positions with some being faced with difficult and dangerous tasks. They are key protectors of parks and conservation. This is done through law enforcement, environmental education, community relations, fighting fires, conducting search and rescues, research, interpretation, and in many other ways.
