Botanizing at Occoneechee Mountain
This North Carolina State Natural Area is a gem, with a diversity of natural plant and animal communities not found anywhere else in the Triangle region. Join Paul Manos, Duke biology professor and Duke Herbarium curator, and Alec Motten, professor emeritus, Duke University Department of Biology on a 2- to 3-mile mountain hike of moderate difficulty. Both Alec and Paul bring a deep expertise in plants and ecology; they will "read" the landscape and give you a unique view of Occoneechee Mountain.
Driving directions will be sent for participants to meet at the site. Please wear comfortable clothes and good walking shoes. Bring a lunch and beverage to enjoy and continue the conversation after the hike.
