The Changing Climate & Grandfather Mountain
Climate change is coming to Grandfather Mountain, whether we want it to or not. How will this affect the plants and animals who live on this mountain, some of which grow nowhere else in the world? Led by forest ecologist Dr. Howard Neufeld, this course will examine the various plant communities along an elevational gradient on Grandfather Mountain, from the deciduous forests at the lowest parts of the park to the rare and endangered spruce-fir forests that reside at the uppermost peaks.
