1 mile | Easy Nature Walk | Ages 10+

Join us for a guided walking tour of one of this area’s most outstanding natural areas. The Catawba Wildflower Glen is a classic climax or old-growth forest with dramatic topography and a remarkably rich diversity of herbaceous and woody plant species. Mary Stauble, a Catawba Lands Conservancy volunteer and botanist, will lead a 1.5-hour walk through the constructed trails of this area’s richest woodland wildflower habitat. We will notice early blooming flowers and native plants. The 20-acre preserve, owned by the Catawba Lands Conservancy, is located near Mountain Island Lake in northwestern Mecklenburg County. The site is open only by permission of CLC.  We are proud to invite members of NC Native Plant Society to also attend this fun event.

Location: The week of the program you will see an email with detailed directions to the Wildflower Glen.
