A special guided hike to the Ridges of Cedar Knob in the Highlands area will explore a high-elevation granite dome on Friday, July 20.
The hike is part of the Eco Tour series hosted by the Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust, designed to share special places that have been conserved but are usually off-limits to the public. The Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust has worked with land owners to protect more than 2,000 acres through conservation easements.
The 117-acre Ridges of Cedar Knob tract is home to a Montana Red Cedar-Hardwood forest as well as several rare and watch-list plant species. The hike will be led by botanist Dr. Gary Wien and herpetologist Kyle Pursel.
Cost is $35 and includes a membership to the land trust, or $10 for existing members. Includes lunch.
