At just over 708 acres, Horton Grove Nature Preserve is the Triangle Land Conservancy’s largest preserve. Once part of Stagville Plantation, Horton Grove Nature Preserve contains five miles of streams, almost eight miles of trails, and an amazing range of habitats and ecologies. Participants will arrive at Horton Grove in the evening to enjoy the sunset and twilight in an evocative landscape. Ken Moore will show you a rare, fairly undisturbed grove of Piedmont Forest and restored prairies.
The Gardens will supply binoculars. Please come dressed for moderate hiking. Participants will meet at the site. Directions supplied and carpooling can be coordinated. A participation agreement will be required of each participant.
