*Rescheduled* First Saturday Walk @ Swift Creek Bluff Nature Preserve
Feb 1 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Due to weather, we’ve rescheduled this event from January 4th to Feb. 1st! 

TLC staff and volunteer hike leaders will guide you on an exploratory hike through Swift Creek Bluffs Nature Preserve! As we hike, we’ll take short 10-15 minute breaks to connect with nature through art. All experiences are welcome, and “art” can be photography, writing, painting, drawing, and more. Kids are encouraged to join, and we will share different methods of creating art with nature just for them!

We can provide crayons and paper for children. For those interested in capturing nature in other ways, please bring your supplies. If you don’t want to participate in an art project, feel free to sit and reflect at our stops!

The hike will be approximately 1 mile on mostly flat terrain. If you have any questions about the hike, please email Elicia at americorps@triangleland.org with the subject line “Art Hike.”

This is a free event, but pre-registration is required.

MEMBERS ONLY: Catawba Trail Farm Sneak Peek Tour @ Catawba Trail Farm
Feb 1 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

This event is for TLC members only. Not yet a TLC member? Join today for just $35 or more, and embrace all that TLC has to offer!

Join us for an exclusive tour of Urban Community AgriNomics Catawba Trail Farms. Triangle Land Conservancy started a partnership with Urban Community AgriNomics (UCAN) in 2017. Since then, UCAN transformed the old farmstead into a space that supports the local community and provides agricultural education. Witness the progress for yourself as you learn about UCAN’s community initiatives, vision for the future, and the history of the land. The tour will be led by one of UCAN’s founders, Delphine Sellars.

This event was rescheduled from January 19th.

Get Wild! Bird Superpowers @ Johnston Mill Nature Preserve
Feb 8 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join us for our family program as we explore the wonders of birds. We’ll practice our observation skills as we look for birds on a short nature walk, conduct an experiment with different types of bird beaks, and even dissect an owl pellet! Through each activity, we’ll discover different bird superpowers.

This program is open to families ages 4 and up. If you have binoculars, feel free to bring them, but they are not required. Remember to dress for the weather and wear clothes you don’t mind getting a bit dirty.

This program is free, but pre-registration is required.

Great Backyard Bird Count @ Brumley Nature Preserve North
Feb 14 @ 8:00 am – 10:00 am

Since 1998, The Great Backyard Bird Count has been collecting citizen science data on birds. This project has been a staple for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society by involving over 100,000 people across 100 different countries resulting in more than 6,200 species counted from over 151,500 check lists in 2017. The data they collect looks at the distribution and abundance of bird species, and the changes from year to year. Most people who take part will spend more than 15 minutes either watching a bird feeder or counting what they see from their home.

Don’t want to bird alone? No problem! TLC will be hosting bird walks through out the count. Each hike will include occasional stops to look for birds.

Wild Ideas for Farms and Forests @ 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.
