“I want to thank you and the rest of the Lumpkin Coalition, and all of the folks who participated in Hemlockfest this year. Without your help, our lab would soon run out of funds to operate. Hopefully we will make a difference in the survival of the Hemlocks in the southern Appalachians. I am in your debt.”
