Every trip to the Paint Rock Forest Research Center is a huge step forward, especially since we have John and Kendra Abbott on the team. They brought Bill Bomar this trip who is the Executive Director of the University of Alabama Museums. Dawn Lemke from Alabama A & M is a great and delightful addition. Returning were Rick Condit, Patty Gowaty and Stephen Hubbell to give this plot and project a thorough inspection and GPS marking. Chris Oberholster with Birmingham Audubon was able to make it on Thursday. Steve Northcutt with the Nature Conservancy met Steve Hubbell Friday and see the designation for the plot.
