Blount County Library series Southern Appalachia

Posted by on Mar 28, 2016 in What's Happening Locally | Comments Off on Blount County Library series Southern Appalachia

Dr. Paul Threadgill, Professor of Biology at Maryville College.

The Blount County Library in Maryville, TN is presenting a four part series on Southern Appalachia.  The series will emphasize natural history, indigenous people, immigration, and the culture and social history resulting from this combination.  The first two-hour presentation was on Feb. 29, 2016 with Dr. Paul Threadgill from Maryville College.   He talked about natural resources making a place attractive to live and the physiography from the Blue Ridge through the Appalachia Plateau.  He touched on the Smoky Mountain climate, precipitation, animals and soil.  I quickly learned my college biology classes were a long time ago, but it was nice to be reminded how interconnected we are in the web of life.

The last three classes will be held at the Blount County Public Library in the Sharon Lawson Room, 508 N. Cusick St., Maryville TN   37804.  Contact person for the series is Joan Van Sickle Sloan (865-982-0891).  Admission and parking are free.
