Winter Hiking at the Roan Mountain Winter Naturalists Rally

February 12, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Saturday, February 12, 2022 at 1:30 pm

Meeting at the Roan Mountain State Park Conference Center


The Annual Friends of Roan Mountain Winter Rally will be abbreviated this year due to Covid-19 concerns but will still offer great opportunities to learn about and explore the mountain! 

The Roan Mountain State Park Conference Center programs which usually take place in the morning will not be offered this year, and no lunch will be served, however the afternoon field trips WILL be available free of charge at 1:30 pm, and there are three great choices.  

Participants will meet at the conference center parking lot at Roan Mountain State Park. Warm clothes and sturdy shoes are recommended. 

  1. Wildlife Tracking and Animal Signs

          Leader: Marty Silver, Park Ranger at Warrior’s Path State Park

          Visiting areas along the Doe River in Roan Mtn. State Park, this moderately strenuous and kid friendly hike will be fun for all ages!

    2. Winter Birding & their Survival Strategies

         Leader: Larry McDaniel, Birder and Naturalist 

         Larry will take participants to look for birds in and around the park and discuss the various winter strategies they use. This walk will not be   strenuous, and participants will need binoculars (there will be a few pairs available to borrow). 

    3. Diversity of Trees and Woody Plants in Winter

        Leader:  Cade Campbell, ETSU Biology Student and Naturalist

        This hike will focus on Roan Mountain’s amazing biodiversity of trees and woody plants and how to identify them during their long winter rest. 


For safety, each field trip is limited to ten people, so please register for your first choice soon!
