Take a walk with NCBG director of conservation Johnny Randall through Mason Farm Biological Reserve, a 367-acre nature preserve in Chapel Hill that features old farm fields, once cultivated by American Indians and the first European settlers to Orange County, now converted to native plant and wildflower meadows, and ancient woodlands of original forest, never clear-cut or plowed. Johnny will discuss the restoration and management efforts over the last 20 years that have helped to rehabilitate an ecologically exceptional wildland.
Note: We'll meet at the gazebo in the NCBG parking lot at 11:00 AM and then head to Mason Farm together. We'll depart Mason Farm around 12:15 to be back at NCBG by 12:30.
