Don Hendershot will lead the field trip. Hendershot is a naturalist, biological consultant and freelance writer. His column, “The Naturalist’s Corner,” has appeared in The Smoky Mountain News for more than a decade. He was one of seven journalists in the Southeast nominated for Wild South’s 2011 Roosevelt-Ashe “Outstanding Journalist in Conservation” award.
The field trip group will meet at the Wal-Mart parking lot near Verizon in Waynesville. Participants should bring a bag lunch, water and rain gear. The field trip is free and open to everyone. GSMAS.com.
