RMR-079: Old Growth Grasslands, a preview with Dr. Dwayne Estes

Old-Growth-Grasslands on Round Bald

I was stunned to learn a new term: Old Growth Grasslands.

Are you stunned too?  I have never heard that term before. It is so descriptive of the balds. I will think that with each step on the trail on the Roan Mountain Highlands.

Dr. Dwayne Estes will present The Southeastern Grasslands Initiative: Charting a New Course for Conservation in the 21st Century, at the Winter Naturalists’ Rally on Saturday, February 17, 2018. The Rally is sponsored by your Friends of Roan Mountain and will be held at the Roan Mountain State Park Conference Center.

Dwayne is a professor of biology at Austin Peay State University and the director of the Southeastern Grasslands Initiative.
