The mountains and foothills of western North Carolina support a wide variety of wildlife that live alongside all of our roadways that wind their way through the forests and fields that cover the region. The roadsides offer important early successional and forest edge habitats for the wildlife that inhabit the area.

You are driving down a winding mountain road, enjoying the fresh spring air blowing in through your open windows. You're listening to your favorite tunes on the radio station and enjoying your afternoon away from work and the everyday stresses of life.

There is nothing more frustrating than an overheating car. If you're driving and suddenly notice that the temperature gauge on your dashboard is rising quickly, it could be a sign that your car is overheating. Ignoring this issue can lead to serious engine damage, leaving you stranded on the side of the road.

Do you regularly check your vehicle's fluids? If not, you are putting the lifespan of your car at risk, as well as its safety and resell value.
