Environment of the VA Highlands Region
In the Virginia Highlands, we enjoy beautiful mountain views. But these mountains not only provide beauty to the local area, but also helps provide healthy air since the average elevation is over 2,000 ft. The local area also has an abundance of clean spring water, which boils out of the ground helping fill South Holston Lake. The healthy environment in the Highlands Region is one of the reasons we enjoy living in the area.
Roberta Hylton shares information about the local environment of the VA Highlands Region:
Here in Southwest Virginia, we have cool mountain air and not only that, we have great clean water. We are in the Upper Tennessee River Basin System with the Clinch, Powell, and Holston Rivers. This area is a national treasure trove of freshwater fish and mussels. If you enjoy the outdoors, you can kayak, canoe, hunt, fish, swim or snorkel. It’s a great place to be.
