Blue Ridge Conservancy Hike at Bear Paw State Natural Area

BRC led the land acquisition effort and partnered with the State of N.C. to create the new Bear Paw State Natural Area. Managed by State Parks, Bear Paw is located on Hanging Rock Ridge, a Significant Natural Heritage Area. Important natural communities with rare and threatened plant species are located within this nationally significant area.

This hike is in partnership with the Appalachian State University Biology Department. All hikes are guided by a naturalist and BRC’s staff, and are free to BRC members. Non-members are encouraged to sign up for a membership prior to the hike.
