Rick Huffines, Executive Director of the Tennessee River Gorge Trust, and Sarah Quattrochi, Outreach and Development Director, join WUTC's Michael Edward Miller to discuss several ways the TRGT is supporting ecological preservation in the river gorge, including a climate change vulnerability assessment of the natural communities within the gorge. A Lyndhurst Foundation grant is making the climate change assessment possible. In this segment, Huffines and Quattrochi also discuss the TRGT’s annual fundraiser, which is coming up June 5th.
