SCNPS will conduct an all-day field trip to the beautiful and diverse Blue Ridge Parkway. The journey through geological time begins in Pickens County. The ride up and over the escarpment will take us through ancient landscapes where botanical treasures change daily. Participants will meet 8 am at SC 178 and SC Hwy 11 Holly Springs Grocery. Participants will drive independently or carpool with Covid safe friends. We plan to arrive at 10 am on the Parkway near Asheville to meet our trip leader. Please dress appropriately and bring lunch and water.
Our trip will be led by a renown parkway by Parkway enthusiast Rick Huffman and naturalist Dan Whitten. We are honored to provide this wonderful opportunity to share a Parkway day with Dan. Fall comes early on the parkway, flowering perennials and grasses will attract throes of butterflies and birds.
