with Ed Harrison, Naturalist

This event has been cancelled due to instructor injury.

Date: Saturday, October 28, 2017 from 1:00 PM to


Ed Harrison, Penny’s Bend Management Committee member, leads a hike through the fall landscape of this 84-acre natural area surrounded on three sides by the Eno River in northeast Durham. Penny’s Bend Nature Preserve encompasses mature forests and remnant diabase glades and prairies with regionally rare plants. About 2 miles in length, much of this hike is on primitive trails over uneven terrain, with one short, steep climb up from the river. Wear sturdy hiking footwear and bring a walking stick (if you use one) and water. Directions will be provided. Fee: $22 ($20 NCBG Members).
