THE BORDER LIFE


CAROLINA SANDHILLS FALL TREE CAMP  
Monday and Tuesday, October 17 & 18, 2022
9 AM till 1PM

      You are invited to join Naturalist Riverdave and Herbalist Suki Roth as we explore together the unique natural history of the NC Sandhills region. We will cover the two main Sandhills habitats, the longleaf pine savanna and the streamhead (gum swamp) pocosin. We will introduce you to around 40 species of trees and shrubs that are most characteristic of the Sandhills region and be on the lookout for herbaceous plants as well. Our walk will cover approximately 2.5 miles of sandy trail so all participants need to be able to walk that distance comfortably. We will explore together the sandy trails of the Walthour-Moss preserve northeast of Southern Pines NC.                       
 

 
   Here is our working list of common Sandhills native trees and shrubs for this Tree Camp that will be provided to each participant: Walthour-Moss Preserve Tree List
 
   You may sign up for either Monday or Tuesday, October 17th or 18th.  Our group size each day will be limited to thirteen individuals. The cost is $40 per person and must be paid in advance. For more details and to register for this event, email Riverdave at riverdave52@gmail.com
