PAC/Landrum Library present “Appalachian Sampler” May 9
Published 6:30 pm Monday, May 1, 2017
The Pacolet Area Conservancy (PAC) and the Landrum Library invite the public to attend a free presentation called “Appalachian Sampler” by Dennis Chastain. The program will be held at the Landrum Library, 111 East Asbury Drive in Landrum, on Tuesday, May 9 at 6:30 p.m.
Dennis Chastain is an award-winning outdoor writer and interpretive naturalist. 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 slideshow composed of moonshine stills; animal tracks, scats and spoor; a tantalizing sampling of the nearly 1,200 flowering species of wildflowers, trees and shrubs that grace our Carolina mountain region; 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 are welcome, too.
This program is made possible thanks to a Free Community Events grant from the Polk County Community Foundation (PCCF).

The next scheduled program will take place on June 8 when naturalist, Carlton Burke, will present “Owls – Masters of the Night,” at 2 p.m., part of the Landrum Library’s Summer Reading Program. The program will feature live owls.
