This is the fifth in a series of Tree Camps offered in Durham and Orange counties along the thousand mile, cross-state walking trail known as the North Carolina Mountains-to-Sea Trail. Join naturalist Riverdave Owen and herbalist Suki Roth as we pick up the trail in Eastern Durham County and follow it as it winds its way along the shores of Fall's Lake. This is an opportunity for you to be mentored in the identification of the one hundred species of native trees and shrubs in the Piedmont region of North Carolina and learn about their medicinal properties from practicing herbalists as well. Class size is kept small with only a dozen in each section, so you can have the benefit of personal interaction with the teachers. You will also enjoy a good introduction to this one thousand mile, cross-state walking tail. Participants must be able to comfortably walk two miles in two hours.
