In the spring of , observant and curious landowners on Naked Mountain were drawn to the blooms of shooting-stars Dodecatheon meadia growing in natural openings on the otherwise heavily forested mountainside. When they learned shooting-stars are uncommon east of the Blue Ridge, they invited Natural Heritage Program staff to take a closer look at the property. A small population of globally rare Torrey's mountain mint Pycnanthemum torrei was also discovered among the native grasses, forbs and small shrubs that occupy the shallow patches of soil around the exposed bedrock of the barrens. Recognizing the need to protect this special habitat, these landowners acted swiftly to donate an easement on the entire property, thereby protecting a large portion of the special habitats and establishing Naked Mountain Natural Area Preserve. Guided field trips to the preserve may be arranged by contacting DCR. Marcia shares episodes of life on Naked Mountain, and the "delights and challenges of living close to nature".
