Mt Rogers Naturalist Rally May 7-8

Have your children EVER held a salamander in their hands?

The Friday Night Program this year will describe the plight of the Appalachian salamanders–particularly those of Rogers-Whitetop (as part of the larger threat to amphibians world-wide) and promises to be an outstanding program by Kevin Hamed after the usual exceptional chicken dinner at the Konnarock Community Center. You can read all about it at the web site.

Saturday field trips include some of the standard favorites, and also several marked as NEW that are worthy of consideration. Give the list a look.  Deciding will be a tough decision this year, as usual.

If you plan to go for the Friday meal, do send in the registration form with your $10 (and $5 per person for the field trips). Camping at Grindstone Campground is first-come, but there are usually plenty of private places for those who want to “rough it.” I usually sleep in the back of the Subaru.
