Coalition Asks: What Are NC's Top Natural Wonders?

A statewide coalition that works to protect North Carolina's natural areas is asking residents to name the state's top 10 natural wonders.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported that Land for Tomorrow has asked North Carolina residents to submit nominations. Suggestions include favorite natural areas; plants and animals unique to the state; majestic views; and scenic spots in danger of development.

Nominations will end May 6.

A panel of judges will narrow the entries. Judges include former governors Jim Hunt and James Holshouser and author Charles Frazier.

Finalists will be announced May 10. Online voting continues until May 18, when winners will be selected.

Land for Tomorrow is a statewide coalition of conservation, wildlife, business, agriculture and governmental organizations that promotes full funding of the state's conservation trust funds.

    I'm sure that most people in Greenville would say the newly expanded football stadium.

    I suppose that this "Coalition" received a grant from the State to conduct this study?? And I guess that's why the fees for our State Parks go up on May 1st?? What a waste of tax money!

    Tax re-evaluation in Beaufort County. Property and house values dropping all over the country and Beaufort County property and house values increase 33 to 1000%.

    The WEATHER - Wait 20 minutes and watch it change.

    The office of governor would be my choice. But I guess that would be "un-natural wonders". I think Ocracoke's unspoiled beaches are the most wonderful.
