In Transylvania County, we value our kids just as much as we value our abundant natural resources and unique cultural opportunities. We embrace their sense of adventure and their right to grow up in a safe, healthy place free of substance abuse and underage drinking.

When we make Transylvania better for our kids, we make it better for everyone.

Join us in keeping our kids as pure and valued as our natural resources and cultural opportunities.
