The program will explore the wonder and mystery of southern Appalachian grassy balds including their presence in Native American myths, theories on how balds originated, and representation flora and fauna. Duernberger will spotlight these “treeless wonders” that have long baffled scientists and enchanted outdoor enthusiasts. These open spaces, often grassy meadows, are found on or near the summits of mountains that are below the tree line. She’ll discuss these unique ecosystems and offer a guide to nineteen representative hiking trails in Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee. She is a longtime lover of the outdoors and has worked for the National Park Service on the Blue Ridge Parkway and now lives in Hendersonville.
