Adventures await on the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, a 1,175-mile trail that stretches from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Outer Banks! Friends of the MST Outreach Manager Betsy Brown shares resources on how to make the most out of your trip. TLC Director of Advancement and her family have been section-hiking the trail, and they share tips and tricks on gear, planning, and more. Thank you to everyone who joined us!
Our Conservation Conversations series is on hold next week. Please join us instead for “Legacy of the Lead in the Soils of Durham,” presented by Anna Wade, a Ph.D. candidate at the Duke University Nicholas School of the Environment. Anna studies the impact of land-use legacies on soils, and her research includes a study on historic lead contamination in Durham’s soils. Her presentation will focus on how cities are beginning to map soil lead levels to combat the issue of soil lead contamination. A better understanding of soil lead contamination will help ensure that residents in urban areas have greater access to healthy and vibrant environments. Sign up today!
