Field Trip to Horton Grove Nature Preserve, Bahama NC

(Trip is cancelled for today due to thunderstorm predictions. We will reschedule - stay tuned. )
Event Sponsor: Margaret Reid Chapter

Triangle Land Conservancy’s Community Engagement Coordinator will be our guide as we explore the newest trails that TLC opened in November 2014.
Horton Grove is TLC’s largest Nature Preserve at just over 708 acres. The preserve contains land on both sides of Jock Road in northern Durham County, which was once part of the Stagville Plantation. Horton Grove contains five miles of perennial streams and was a project of the Upper Neuse Clean Water Initiative (UNCWI) to protect water quality of streams flowing into the Falls Lake Reservoir. The preserve currently contains approximately 8 miles of trail and TLC is working to expand the trail network to provide further hiking opportunities, including a connection to the Stagville State Historic Site. Once the trail network is completed, Horton Grove will provide over 10 miles of hiking trails.
These trails wind through mature forests, including upland oak-hickory forests, beech slopes, and several stands of mixed pine and hardwoods. In addition, TLC has restored two small native plant meadows, including a 20-acre meadow surrounding the main parking area. Open meadows and grasslands are important for numerous species, but have become rare throughout the piedmont of North Carolina. TLC is restoring native grasses that provide nesting and foraging habitat for a variety of bird species, as well as flowering forbs to support pollinators.
