Make a donation in memory of Tony Austin
Tony was a dedicated volunteer in Panthertown.
He served on our Board of Trustees since 2012.
We send his friends and family our condolences.
Panthertown Valley is a treasured 6,311-acre backcountry recreation area located on Nantahala National Forest in the Canada township of Jackson County in western North Carolina near the mountain towns of Cashiers, Sapphire, and Lake Toxaway, not too far from Asheville, Brevard, Franklin, and Sylva.
The mission of Friends of Panthertown is to work in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service to conserve this outstanding natural resource while improving the quality and experience of recreational opportunities in Panthertown Valley.
We are a member and volunteer supported 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Our volunteers maintain 30 miles of backcountry trails, and our members and partners support conservation projects in Panthertown Valley with donations and grants.
