Friends of Roan Mountain

Friends of Roan Mountain fosters greater awareness and understanding of the natural, historical, and cultural significance of Roan Mountain. Friends of Roan offers naturalists rallies throughout the year and works with Roan Mountain State Park and the Forest Service on numerous projects.

Due to the Covid-19 the Spring 2020 Naturalists Rally was canceled as Roan Mountain State Park was closed. With modifcations, Xtreme Roan Adventures and the Fall Rally were both a success. Thanks to all the leaders and volunteers who made them successful!

Virtual Spring 2020 Roan Mountain Naturalists Rally

One of the prior scheduled evening speakers for the Fall Rally, Jerry Greer, has provided an online version of the program he had planned to present at the rally. Click this link, Forest for the Trees,  to view the program. It is based on his beautiful new book, available from Jerry's website at Forest for the Trees.



In addition to rallies, the Friends of Roan Mountain provides volunteer labor and grants to support Roan Mountain State Park and the U. S. Forest Service in their naturalist and environmental missions, as well as scientific studies and conservation and restoration projects on the Roan.
