There will be multiple stops along the way to learn about the ecology and the history of the preserve.

Wed, May 10, 9am-11:30am White Pines Morning Hike
On this moderate, 3.5-mile hike led by their trail guide, Pam, you will see five varieties of pine trees. This preserve contains species not typically found in the North Carolina Piedmont but still remain here from the last ice age due to the rivers surrounding the area creating a microclimate. You can also watch for white-tailed deer, beavers, gray foxes, and muskrats. The pace of this hike will be just under 1.5 mph. Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a full water bottle! This is a free event, but pre-registration is required.
