Leading the way in landscape-scale stewardship of the globally significant and fragile ecosystems of the Highlands of Roan.
What are the Highlands of Roan?
The Roan Massif is a tight cluster of mountains and ridges that straddles the border of North Carolina and Tennessee. Also known as the Highlands of Roan or Roan Highlands, this area contains many peaks that reach above 5,000 and 6,000 ft. elevation, considered high elevations of the southern Appalachians. The geographic characteristics and terrain of the Roan Highlands have created unique pockets of habitat and biodiversity at these highest elevations.
