Cumberland sandwort obviously
at a time when not in bloom. I will try to time my visits better next year.
Cumberland sandwort was listed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as
federally endangered in June 1988. You can view the
Cumberland Sandwort Recovery Plan - Here.
Cumberland sandwort is only
known to grow in the Big South Fork of the Cumberland watershed in Pickett,
Fentress, Morgan and Scott counties in Tennessee and and one location in
neighboring McCreary county in Kentucky.
