Wildflower Wednesday Hike
April 25 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm| Free – $10
Celebrate Earth Month with a Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy wildflower hike! There will be an optional hour of fun volunteer work pulling garlic mustard on this outing. This hike is free for SAHC members and Earth Month Volunteers, and $10 for non-members/non-volunteers. If you decide to stay and pull garlic mustard with us, there will be no cost to the hike!
This hike will take place in the Sandy Mush Farming Community, where SAHC has helped protect over 10,000 acres of land! The Pardues have been enjoying the birds and wildflowers on this property since the 1970s. The main attractions will be the spring wildflowers such as bloodroot, hepatica and spring beauty, and birds such as Blue-headed Vireo and Ovenbird. The hike will be at elevations of 3,400 to 4,000 feet, providing beautiful vistas. Hikers will walk about 4 miles through woodlands and along primitive trails, with some bushwhacking and occasional steep slopes.
