Return of the Smokies greenhouse

The latest Dispatches from the Field update highlights the return of the greenhouse at the Twin Creeks Science Center.

You may recall the windstorm on Christmas Eve of 2009 that flattened the historic Caughron Barn in Cades Cove. That same storm that produced gusts of up to 95 miles per hour also toppled the greenhouse that had been used to cultivate native grass seedlings. Those seedlings are used to restore native grasses in Cades Cove.
