Blue Ridge Conservancy purchased an 88-acre property on Harmon Knob to expand the existing 1,200 acres that make up the Tater Hill Bog Preserve.  This acquisition follows 88 acres BRC recently added to the Tater Hill Bog in 2016.  Harmon Knob is a large, broad, highly visible mountain located southeast of Potato Hill in Watauga County.

The Tater Hill Bog Preserve is a rare mountain bog ecosystem, home to an array of endangered and threatened plant species, and contains the headwaters of Howard’s Creek, an outstanding fisheries resource.

The Preserve is managed by the NC Plant Conservation Program, a division of the NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Resources.  BRC plans to transfer ownership of the 88 acres to the NC Plant Conservation Program to be managed as part of the Preserve.

All hikes are guided by a naturalist and BRC’s staff, and are free to BRC members. Non-members are encouraged to sign up for a membership prior to the hike.
