Formerly Western North Carolina Alliance.

Mountain True contains the French Broad and Watauga Riverkeepers. It has received support from radical leftists funders like the Tides Foundation, Energy Foundation, Park Foundation and Z Smith Reynolds Foundation. In fact since 2003, Mountain True has received over fifty-eight percent of its grant monies from these four foundations. Mountain True’s radical progressive agenda also includes the leftists induced Climate Change theory.
