2014 Field Trip Schedule

 

 

BLAZING STARS OR BUST

August 2 OR 9      10:30am-1:00pm

(limit 7)

Hosts: Chris Ulrey (NPS) and PCP Staff

Location:  in Ashe County. No facilities or trails on site.  Participants will help collect data from permanently marked populations of this high-elevation rocky outcrop species. Hiking will be strenuous across steep, rocky terrain.

Please register by July 19th by emailing nancy.stewart@ncagr.gov or calling 919-707-3755 

 

SINKHOLES AND SEDGES

August 16                9:00am-12:00pm

Hosts: Richard LeBlond and PCP Staff

Location:  at Hog Branch Ponds Preserve in Brunswick County. No facilities are available on site. Participants will visit a collection of isolated “limesink” wetlands on the Hog Branch Ponds Preserve.  Limesinks are one of the most important and unusual habitats for imperiled plants in NC. With luck and persistence we hope to see several rare Beakrushes and other inhabitants of this habitat and special Preserve.

Please register by August 2nd by emailing nancy.stewart@ncagr.gov or calling 919-707-3755

 

DETAILS AND DIRECTIONS WILL BE SENT TO REGISTERED PARTICIPANTS APPROXIMATELY ONE WEEK BEFORE EACH TRIP.
