This episode of Save Our Towns will take you on a trip back to the Ice Age as we visit the town of Saltville, Virginia. We also don our hiking boots to join Robert Dickerson, mayor of Pearisburg, Virginia, on a hike up a mountain.
Our expert tip comes from the University of Virginia’s Susanne Moomaw Morse, who emphasizes the roles mayors can play in bringing their towns together. Jeff Marion of Virginia Tech’s College of Natural Resources and Environment has done work on preserving the Appalachian Trail, while Virginia Cooperative Extension specialist Phil Blevins works to promote the economic impact of agriculture.
Meanwhile, we end this month’s episode with three questions for Saltville mayor Todd Young.
