Come join us for an exploration of Bluestem, a newly created non-profit 87 acre nature preserve including a conservation cemetery!

TLC and Eno River Association are Bluestem’s conservation partners helping to protect it with an upcoming conservation easement. As a nature preserve, Bluestem is restoring 30 acres of former farm fields into prairie grasslands. It is open to all, with a growing trail network built by volunteers. We’ll be hiking Bluestem’s 2 miles of trails, through lovely fields, forests, streams, and by a pond. These trails are accessible to the public 365 days a year.

Bluestem is also a conservation cemetery with 50 acres set aside for natural burial. “Natural burial at Bluestem is simple, natural and personal. It occurs without embalming, without metal or steel caskets, and without concrete vaults.”

Come explore this lovely land with us. The trails are flat, though some may be muddy after a rain. Kids are welcome and while Bluestem does love dogs, this is an event only for their owners. This is a free event, but preregistration is required. If the event is full, please add your name to our waitlist at this link.

 

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.

 

Fairy Hike and Picnic @ Brumley North Parking Lot
Mar 4 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Join magic-lovers of all ages as we meander through the woods at Brumley North, spotting fairies, nature spirits, and other interesting sights out of the corners of our eyes. We will alternate gentle hiking with circle games, movement, singing, art-making, and even walking the labyrinth!
All ages welcome; activities geared at ages 4-10. Older and younger siblings are especially welcomed, as are magical adults. Bring a picnic snack (and a blanket) for your family, a water bottle, and shoes you can get muddy. When you register, please tell us how many people are coming — you can list children as guests, but total number and grades of children will help us prepare.
