We'll look for signs of Spring on this easy 4-5 mile Central Piedmont Group hike. Our route through Latta Plantation Nature Preserve in Huntersville, NC offers opportunities to have a look at a diversity of natural communities, including a Piedmont Prairie Restoration site that protects the federally endangered Schweinitz's sunflower. We will take time to explore and enjoy what we see along the trails and have a relaxing break lakeside. These trails are mostly even, but there are some areas of uneven and rocky terrain. Participants should bring water and snacks. Binoculars may be helpful for bird watching. Group size is limited to twelve participants. Please contact Linda for more information and to register. firstname.lastname@example.org All participants on Sierra Club outings will need to read/sign a standard liability waiver.
