Nature Walks at Walnut Creek Preserve

Join Conserving Carolina for an interpretive nature walk will take place on Saturday, April 17. We will offer two walks, the first will be from 10:00-11:30 a.m. and the second 1:00-2:30 p.m. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in order to make this an enjoyable and educational experience for participants, space is limited to 12 for each session and pre-registration is required. Participants are also required to wear a mask and keep a physical distance of 6 feet or more.

This walk will feature naturalist, Tim Lee. Tim will lead participants on a moderate walk through the 2,100 acre Preserve, exploring the forest floor for newly emerged spring wildflowers.

Tim is native South Carolinian and he has studied and taught as a naturalist and biologist throughout the southeast for more than 30 years. For the past 20 years he has been the Interpretive Ranger and Naturalist for South Carolina State Park Service’s Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area (Jones Gap and Caesar’s Head SPs) where he conducts research and provides educational programs for children and adults. He is a coordinator and instructor for the South Carolina Master Naturalist Program and is an Educational Leadership Partner for the South Carolina Aquarium. Tim is member of the National Association of Interpreters and an honorary SC Statewide Master Naturalist and an honorary member of the Upstate Master Naturalist Association.

For your safety, do not attempt this activity if it is beyond your ability and experience. Participants should wear appropriate clothing and footwear and bring a snack, water, and any personal medication that may be required.
