September Program Recap

'Georgia's Mountain Treasures'

Jess Riddle, Forest Ecologist with Georgia ForestWatch, spoke about the special places in the North Georgia mountains that deserve protection.

During a slide presentation, he noted that mountain waters supply many areas in the Southeast, and that the forests have the

most biodiversity in the world: most salamander species, highest trillium diversity and most new species of plants.

He mentioned that GFW works with the National Forest Service in 40 special areas in efforts to reforest

areas damaged by erosion, fires and logging.
