Nature Walks

Nature Walks   Nature Walk 2012 - 5 

Come out and join local naturalist Ken Crouse of Peaceful Valley Gardens for an easy hike through the gardens and forest of the WCC Campus.  Take a look at the wildflowers, trees, mushrooms, and ferns that make the local ecology so unique.   

Learn about the folklore, edible and medicinal uses of many of our locally native plants and fungi.  Walk through some of the many "theme gardens" and learn the history of the WCC Gardens. 

You will also learn about some of the plants that have been the inspiration for many of the traditional songs of the Southern Appalachian Mountains.

Nature walks will begin by the red Caboose and will last about one hour.

Departure Times:

Friday: 5 p.m.
Saturday morning: 10 a.m.
Saturday afternoon: 5 p.m.
