Successful Herding off the Mountain

Our 7th season of the Baatany Project came to a close on September 10 when the goats came down off the mountain. They are now in their Shady Valley, TN home. Please see our HERDING PAGE for more information on the day.

Baatany Project's Botany Project

The past six years of the Baatany Project has first and foremost been an attempt to restore Grassy Bald and Alder Bald on Roan's western balds using goats as an experimental management tool. The first scientific publication from this project, with Jamey Donaldson as lead author has been published in the Southeastern Naturalist. The full article is available for download here.

New Video

Videographer Lesley Platek of LIFEfilms has made a delightful video highlighting what goes on during a herding up the mountain, and highlights the many volunteers who come to help. (If the video below is not viewable, you should be able to view it here).
