About the Event

Just  before the full flush of fall leave color arrives, nature provides one  last gasp of beautiful Wildflowers to enjoy before the onset of dormancy  and Winter.  We will see numerous Asters, Ironweeds, Gentians, and  Goldenrods as we walk at a slow and gentle pace, learning of the plants  and their stories.

Save the date:  In the event of severe weather, the backup date is Thursday October 6th.

Check in at CLE office at 9:00am                          Limit: 20

Guide:  Adam Bigelow is a Horticulturist and the owner of Bigelow's Botanical Excursions, an Ecotourism business offering guided, interpretive walks with a focus on the native  Wildflowers and Plants of the Southern Appalachian bioregion.  Adam has  been studying and working with plants for over twenty years, and is the  Garden Manager for the Cullowhee Community Garden, a donation based  organic community garden supported by the Jackson County Health  Department.
