Carolina Beach State Park walk

(9 - 11 a.m.)
Event Sponsor: South East Coastal Chapter

Carla Edwards, Park Ranger at CBSP, and Dr. AJ Bullard, expert on native woody vines, shrubs and trees, will lead the walk.  We will visit some newly burned areas where Longleaf habitat restoration is taking place and will end with the Flytrap Trail.

Several coastal ecosystems are present in the park. Forests dominated by longleaf pine, turkey oak and live oak occupy the dry, coarse soil of a series of relict sand dunes. Between the dunes are dense shrub swamps, called pocosins, populated by pond pines, loblolly and sweet bay, yaupon and evergreen shrubs. Brackish marshes consisting primarily of cordgrasses and sedges can be found beyond the relict dunes adjacent to the river.  This is a special place, with 382 species of vascular plants within its boundary.

Nature Walk led by Dr. Carrie Dejaco, McDowell Nature Preserve

(Meet at 2:00 PM)
Event Sponsor: Charlotte Chapter

While most of the trails in the preserve are in the wooded areas, we will instead venture into the prairie area to view the late summer extravaganza of a display by many different types of asters such as the bright and beautiful goldenrod, which frequently gets blamed for folks’ ragweed allergies this time of year, and the warm-season grasses such as the 6-ft. tall Indian grass.
