Take a walk through the colorful fall landscape of this remnant 84-acre diabase glade and Piedmont prairie in northwest Durham, surrounded on three sides by the Eno River. Penny’s Bend Nature Preserve, managed by NCBG, encompasses mature forests as well as remnant prairies with numerous regionally rare plants. Late-October/early November is generally the peak of fall color season in the Piedmont. Fee: $10 ($5 ncbg members). Meeting place will be sent to you after registration. Please Note: This hike is about 2 miles in length, and much of it is on uneven terrain. Wear sturdy hiking footwear and carry a walking stick if you use one, as well as water.
