May Wildflower Wednesday

May 30 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Date:  Wednesday, May 30

Time:   11:00-3:00pm

Location:   Prices Creek Preserve near Burnsville, NC

Cost:  This hike is free for SAHC members and $10 for non-members

Enjoy a wildflower memorial hike to honor our friend Bill Popper and his dedication to preserving the 573-acre property he loved.  The hike will take us through a primarily Northern Hardwood Forest ecosystem. Once we get off the gravel road, we will cross into the property and hop onto an old logging road and head towards a nice spot along the creek to enjoy a picnic lunch.  Along the way, we will hopefully see some Purple Turtle Heads blooming and maybe eat some Indian Cucumber. We will hike about four miles with some possible bushwhacking.

This hike is part of  the Wildflower Wednesday Hike Series, showcasing the incredible biodiversity in our region. The hikes will be on the last Wednesday of the month in March, April, May, and June.  The Wildflower Wednesday Hikes will have representative from the Western North Carolina Botanical Club with us to help identify and learn about the flowers!
