Dogwood Alliance Welcomes New Campaign Organizer, Rita Frost

Dogwood Alliance is pleased to announce Rita Frost as our new Campaign Organizer! Rita believes in getting our country to a place where we respect all natural areas, like we respect national parks and that working with forest conservation is one of the frontline fights that we can do to face not only the problems of climate change, but also to get wilderness back into the ethos of American citizens.

Dogwood’s Asheville Outreach Intern

I found it very rewarding to work with so many dedicated environmentalists this summer. I was able to learn more about how non-profits function as well as be an instrumental part in Dogwood’s local outreach. Through establishing a volunteer base here in Asheville, Dogwood will be able to more effectively advocate for our forests here in the South.

Sasha Mitchell Saves The Day!

Sasha Mitchell is Dogwood’s new Operations Coordinator! What does that mean? It means that our well-oiled machine is only as well-oiled as Sasha keeps it, and in the mere few months that Sasha has been with us, our machine is running better than ever!

CAYLA Intern Kimberly Vargas Rocks

Dogwood Alliance is lucky to partner with the CAYLA (City of Asheville Youth Leadership Academy) Program each year to welcome a new youth leader as an intern. This year, we have the privilege to work with Kimberly Vargas.
