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.

    art theplaceHow do you do it? I get asked this question quite often. Folks, whether friends, family or strangers, approach me and wonder how I’m able to write, day in and day out, about anything and everything.
