South Carolina State Library presents Amy Duernberger: Exploring the Southern Appalachian Grassy Balds: A Hiking Guide March 7 from noon – 1 p.m. The “treeless wonders” of the southern Appalachians, grassy balds have long baffled scientists and enchanted outdoor enthusiasts. They exist as open spaces, often grassy meadows, on or near the summits of mountains. This is the first guidebook to focus exclusively on the southern Appalachian grassy balds and is organized into five geographic areas, with complete descriptions, maps, photos, and historical tidbits.
