Help keep Roan Mountain bald

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy is looking for a few volunteers to help cut back the large woody shrubs growing on Roan Mountain in order to maintain the mountain as a bald.

The ATC is asking volunteers to use those certified chainsaw skills or lopping skills to cut back woody growth and protect the rare grassy balds habitat in the Roan Highlands of NC and TN. All skill levels are welcome.

Volunteers should meet at Carver's Gap on August 28 and or August 29 at 9:00 am. You'll hike about 1.5 miles to the worksite work site and should return around 4:00 pm each day.
