Kentucky's blooming goldenrod no longer needs protection AP , WHAS 1:12 PM. CDT October 07, 2016
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - After nearly 30 years of conservation efforts, the U.S. Forest Service says it has removed the white-haired goldenrod from a list of federally-protected plants.
The fall-blooming perennial flower was listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act in 1988 after nearly disappearing from the Red River Gorge area of eastern Kentucky, which is the only place it grows.
The Forest Service said in a statement on Friday that it made a final decision to delist the plant after a comprehensive review found it blooming in abundance.
A recovery plan for the goldenrod stated it should be considered for delisting when 40 geographically distinct, self-sustaining occurrences have been maintained for a decade. The statement says there are now 46 occurrences.

jamiekaj: I'm new to climbing (been in the gym for about a month now) and am looking for partners to get me to the gorge and back (from Lexington) / teach me a few things. I have gear (minus a rope) and could provide pizza, gas, and beer.
