Come join us at our Horton Grove Nature preserve to learn about historical medicinal plants and their uses. Our Education and Outreach intern Reagan will teach us about the medicinal uses of plants such as Red Maple, Sweetgum, Honeysuckle and many more! This event will explore the history and communities of Historic Stagville, and center discussions about the healing and caring expertise of the people that were once enslaved there.
This short hike will be a little under 2 miles, and will journey through both the grassland and forested areas of the preserve with some slight topographical change. There will be plenty of stops along the way to check out what plants we can find and identify so be sure to bring good walking shoes, sunscreen, and a full water bottle.
This event is free but pre-registration is required. Save your spot here!
Current Mask Policy: TLC seeks to build a supportive, mask-friendly environment in all collaborations with staff and the public. Please wear a mask if you are not vaccinated, or if that makes you feel most comfortable. We will have masks available if you would like to wear one during an event. We also encourage those eligible to be vaccinated to get their Covid-19 vaccine and booster shot. If you are experiencing any Covid-related symptoms, please stay home and attend a program another day. Our top priority is to create a safe environment for our community. Thank you for your understanding.
