The Friends and the WNC Nature Center are saddened by the passing of Charlie Green. A good friend to humans and reptiles, Charlie made a difference in the lives of thousands of people — and many thousands of animals. Thank you to Charlie for a life spent devoted to what he loved and believed in.
“Few people in this world have the capacity to give and love unconditionally and to believe and be compassionate to a dream or vision. Charlie Green had a passion for his reptiles and turtles that radiated out to all who encountered him. He gave without question, helped without expectation and he loved what he did and who he was. Our community will feel his void and miss his energy.”
