On Friday, May 3, join the Hemlock Restoration Initiative and Conserving Carolina for a hemlock-centric hike at the beautiful Florence Nature Preserve.

HRI AmeriCorps Stewardship Associate Hanusia Higgins and Conserving Carolina AmeriCorps Trails Associate Logan Haynes will lead hikers on a 3.5-mile round-trip hike to and through the scenic preserve, protected by Conserving Carolina in 1996. We will discuss hemlock ecosystems, the hemlock woolly adelgid, and current options and efforts to control the adelgid.

Stay tuned for more details on time and how to RSVP!
