Wild Ideas for Farms and Forests @ NC Museum of Natural Sciences – Nature Research Center
Mar 12 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm


Triangle Land Conservancy’s Wild Ideas series provides a unique venue for experts and the community to share their innovative ideas to improve lives through conservation by safeguarding clean water, protecting wildlife habitat, supporting local farms and food, and connecting people to nature. On March 12th we will introduce the community to the Bailey and Sarah Williamson Preserve at Wild Ideas for Farms and Forests. Williamson Preserve is a 405-acre property owned by TLC that embodies all four of our public benefits. The land is host to several unique ecosystems, working farmland, years of local agrarian history, and will connect to the Neuse River Greenway Trail, East Coast Greenway, and Mountains to Sea Trail. Join us to learn more about this special place and the community who helped shape it as we prepare for it to open on April 25th.

Urban Bats & Urban Legends @ Brumley Nature Preserve - South
Mar 14 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Join TLC and Eric of Humane Homes as we dispel common bat myths and shine a light on the ways they enrich our lives. We’ll discuss bat biology, behavior, and conservation needs. You’ll also build bat boxes that you can take home! Spring is an ideal time to install a bat house as they are coming out of hibernation and migrating home for summer.

Limit of 10 boxes to be constructed, 1 per family. We provide instructions and tools, but feel free to bring a hammer. Resources will be provided on the placement and installation of bat boxes.

This program is free, but registration is required.

Guest Lecture Series: Fire in North Carolina – A Human and Natural History @ Bailey and Sarah Williamson Preserve
Mar 18 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Do you think of a fire in the forest as a wild, uncontrollable force? Interestingly, humans have intentionally used “wildland fire” as a tool for many thousands of years. Join us for TLC’s first guest lecture series at our new satellite office in southeast Raleigh on Wednesday, March 18 from 6:30-8:30pm! Laurel Kays is an Extension Assistant with NC State University Extension Forestry, where she specializes in wildland fire. Laurel works with landowners, professionals, and other partners across the Southeast to improve wildland fire management and increase the use of safe and effective prescribed fire. Her presentation “Fire in North Carolina: A Human and Natural History” will focus on North Carolina and how our fire history and human history are fundamentally linked. Light horderves and refreshments will be available. Space is limited. The address to the preserve will be provided via confirmation email.
