Join SAHC and the Hemlock Restoration Initiative (HRI) on a hike to explore some beautiful stands of Carolina hemlocks in the Fairview Farming Community, where SAHC has helped protect over 1,300 acres of forest and historic farmland. We will learn about Carolina hemlock ecosystems, the hemlock wooly adelgid, and current options and efforts to control the adelgid.

We will begin with a short walk to a large stand of hemlocks where we will first discuss the hemlock wooly adelgid and mitigation options. We will then travel to Hickory Nut Gap on the Eastern Continental Divide and traverse several SAHC Conservation Easements, giving hikers a chance to learn about our land protection work in the area, as well as to see more hemlocks. We will be rewarded with scenic views from Ferguson Peak and Rocky Point along the way!
