Dennis Chastain is an award-winning outdoor writer and interpretive naturalist and his “Appalachian Sampler” presentation is a representative sample of natural and cultural features characteristic of the Blue Ridge segment of the ancient Appalachian Mountains. He has put together a slide show composed of moonshine stills, animal tracks, scats and spoor, and a tantalizing sampling of the nearly 1,200 flowering species of wildflowers, trees and shrubs that grace our Carolina mountain region; along with ancient Indian petroglyphs, rock shelters, waterfalls and finally, a pictorial survey of snakes and reptiles.

This program is best for adults and children who listen like adults. Families welcome too.

This program is made possible by a Free Community Events grant from the Polk County Community Foundation.
