BLAZING STARS OR BUST
August 2 OR 9 10:30am-1:00pm
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
