5th Annual Herding of the Goats

Kick off the first day of summer by helping Jamey Donaldson herd 34 goats from Carvers Gap to Jane Bald at part of the Baa-tany project. The Baa-tany Goat Project is a stewardship initiative to manage and restore grassy balds in the western Highlands of Roan Mountain.

Volunteers make the Baa-tany Goat Project a success each year. This year's herding event will occur on June 20th. If interested in participating, please RSVP with Rich Preyer at rich@appalachian.org or by calling 828-253-0095 ext. 205. Please bring hiking shoes, lunch, water, jacket/rain gear, camera, and warm clothes.
