Abstract:
Merrill Lynch, a North Carolina State University zoology graduate, is employed with the North Carolina Natural Heritage Program, a division of the North Carolina Department of Natural Resources. When he was hired in 1979, the program was seeking someone to survey bottomland hardwood forests along the Roanoke River. In his surveys, Lynch discovered an area now called the Camassia Slopes, where plants normally seen in the Smoky Mountains and Ohio River Valley grow. The land, which was later deeded to the Nature Conservancy, is one of twenty top priority sites along the Roanoke River identified for preservation.
