Welcome to the Baa-tany Goat Project's Blog!

The Roan Massif, of the Roan Highlands, has the world's premier examples of the globally rare Southern Appalachian Grassy Bald ecosystems. These grassy balds are declining due to soil changes, climate change and lack of large herbivores. This makes these beautiful, grassy balds susceptible to woody plant invasion, which is shrinking the corridor of the remaining Roan balds.
