Join the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy on a springtime wildflower stroll through our 552-acre Laurel Ridge conservation easement. Participants will be led through dense Southern Appalachian Oak Forests and Cove Forests over lovely streams, and rock formations along old, healed logging roads. As we meander through this wilderness we will keep our eyes peeled for the dizzying floral display of wildflowers on the forest floor. Participants will walk away with a deeper, more visceral understanding of the incredible biodiversity and beauty of the Southern Appalachians.
