Take guided tour in Waynesville’s watershed

Written by 

A Waynesville watershed hike is scheduled for Saturday, June 11, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Naturalist Don Hendershot and Western Carolina University Forestry Professor Peter Bates will lead the group. Bates and Hendershot will discuss the flora and fauna of the watershed, as well as the watershed management plan that governs it.

The Waynesville watershed is a 9,000-acre preserve, flanking the mountains to the south of town, running from Allen’s Creek to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The watershed is normally closed to public access, with hikes offered just twice a year in the spring and fall.

Participants must be able to hike 3 to 5 miles in moderately strenuous terrain. Birders should bring their binoculars. No pets allowed.

Directions will be sent after registration.

This Must Be the Place

    art theplaceIt’s not only a time capsule, but also a window into the future.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
