A rare romp in the watershed

Written by 

A guided hike in the Waynesville watershed preserve, an 8,600-acre tract typically off-limits to the public, will be offered at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9.

The preserve reaches from Allens Creek up to the Blue Ridge Parkway, a massive flank that cradles the southern end of town. The tract serves as the source of Waynesville’s drinking water.

A 3-5 mile ecology hike will be led by Dr. Peter Bates, a forester with Western Carolina University and Naturalist Don Hendershot. Hendershot will offer an additional birding hike at 8 a.m.

Spots fill up quickly. www.townofwaynesville.org or 828.452.2491.
