Meteor Shower Hike @ Brumley Nature Preserve-Service Entrance
Dec 13 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Join TLC at Brumley Nature Preserve for a night hike to see the Geminid meteor shower!  It is supposed to be the brightest meteor shower of the year, with up to 100 meteors per hour.  We will hike with headlamps and flashlights down to an open area of the preserve in order to have the best view.  Bring a blanket or towel to sit on, and dress warmly!

We will use the service entrance on the north side, not the public entrance.

Pre registration required.



Walnut Hill Advisory Committee Meeting @ Good Hope Baptist Church
Dec 20 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

We are having a meeting for the Walnut Hill Advisory Committee to continue moving forward with plans for our newest preserve.  We will be presenting the Regenerative Design Groups draft of the plan for Walnut Hill, followed by discussion and feedback.  Holiday refreshments will be provided.

In addition to its agricultural and historical significance, Walnut Hill Farm contains contiguous, unfragmented forests as well as several streams that drain into Marks Creek and the Neuse River. The property is also adjacent to the Riverwalk conservation tract to the south, which is owned by the State and under a stewardship management agreement with the Town of Clayton. The Riverwalk tract links Walnut Hill Farm to the Neuse River and the Neuse River Greenway, segments of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail.

First Saturday Walk @ White Pines Nature Preserve
Jan 5 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm

Join us at White Pines Nature preserve for our monthly guided hike, and the first TLC hike of the new year!  Explore some of the new trail systems built and view the beautiful Deep and Rocky rivers.  White Pines provides habitat for a wide variety of animals, and winter results in some beautiful seasonal changes in this habitat.  Kick off 2019 outdoors with us!

Please remember to wear comfortable shoes, and bring sunscreen, bug spray, and water with you. Leashed dogs are also welcome to join in the fun.

Get Wild! Winter Wonders @ Brumley Nature Preserve - Northern Parking lot
Jan 12 @ 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Join TLC for this family event about how some mammals and reptiles brave the cold conditions of winter.  We will learn about how beavers, snakes, and other animals found at Brumley Nature Preserve are able to survive low temperatures and food shortages through games and activities.  Finish it off with one of our favorite winter adaptations- a campfire with s’mores!

Please dress for the weather, and wear closed-toed shoes.
