Four Mile Creek Greenway, Piper Glen

Last summer, these walks were very popular so we have brought them back again this year. Charlotte Observer contributor and expert naturalist, Taylor Piephoff, will lead these walks along the Four Mile Creek Greenway in Piper Glen. (Piper Glen! NOT Matthews).

This portion of the greenway goes through a variety of habitat and marshland where the wildlife is abundant. Frogs, turtles, beaver, deer, bunnies, and more. On this 2+ hour walk, Taylor will teach us how to identify the frogs we are hearing by their calls, and we will catch the frogs so everyone gets a good look (or touch) before releasing them. We will also explore the wonderful flora along this trail. (Taylor knows everything!)

Near the end of the walk, after dark, the path meanders through thick tree canopy where the lightening bugs are usually very active. Its a magical walk through the woods in a very safe environment where you will experience nature differently than you do during the day. This walk is enjoyed by kids and adults alike.

Because they were so well-attended, we will be restricting the number of people on each walk to ensure everyone has a quality experience. Space is limited so please let us know which walk you would like to attend, how many are in your party. (We will attend June 13,2014) Once the list has been finalized, we will get back to you with details on where to meet. This walk is free and because of the popularity of these walks, preference will be given to current NCWF/HAWK members Leader and guest only.
Sharon Decker is a member and can bring her group.
