Field Trip to Grassy Hill Natural Heritage Preserve

Join us Thursday, July 25th for a field trip led by Bryan Wender, Mountain Region Steward of the VA DCR, Division of VA Natural Heritage. Bryan will take us to Grassy Hill Preserve, a special area protected by our state near Rocky Mount, VA. It features a nice trail through a Piedmont oak-hickory forest in addition to several rare plants such as fame flower, and a species of coneflower. This trip should prove quite interesting. Bryan is giving up his evening to lead us. So please come one come all. Walking may be a little weedy in spots so bring bug juice and long pants. If you would like to car pool to the trailhead at the Gereau Center for Applied Technology and Career Exploration (across the street from the Franklin County YMCA) in Rocky Mount, please meet at the Henry County Administration Building parking lot early enough to leave promptly at 6pm to arrive at the trailhead by 6:30pm. For more information contact Ellen Jessee at or cell phone 276-340-5836.
