Guided Goat Hike on Roan Mountain

Thursday, August 12, 2010

The Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy will be hosting a guided Goat Hike on Roan Mountain this Saturday.

Once again this summer, Jamey Donaldson, leader of the “Baa-tany Goat Project,” is rotating goats through test plots of vegetation on the high-elevation grassy balds of Roan Mountain. The SAHC hike will visit the goats and learn about their role in preserving the grassy balds. The hike will be around five miles of moderately steep terrain.

The hike will be led by David Hall from 10am – 1pm this Saturday, August 14th. To RSVP, e-mail or call 828-253-0095, ext 209.
