Tree ID Walk – April 5, 2017 – National Walking Day

Chatham County Blogs - Tue, 04/04/2017 - 13:53
Those boots are made for walking, so put them on and join me, your friendly neighborhood Parks Planner, and Margaret Tiano of Grand Trees of Chatham for National Walking Day. We'll meet in the parking lot of Rock Ridge Park at 4 PM on April 5, 2017.

Margaret will provide a Tree Identification workshop while we explore the diverse ecology of Rock Ridge Park.  We've done this for several years now and it's always been fun and informative. We saw a Fringe Tree in bloom last year and I learned how to identify a Black Tupelo or Black Gum Tree (There are several near the mini-amphitheater).

Unless there's a really heavy rainstorm or thunderstorms we'll still meet, so bring raingear, perhaps a water bottle, and comfortable shoes. We can still do this in a light drizzle.  Here's a link to NOAA weather forecast for Pittsboro. All ages are welcome!

There are other participating sites throughout Chatham County, check here to see if there is one closer to you. Each site will likely have their own inclement weather policies, so follow up with respective agencies if the weather is looking questionable.

A Huge Thanks to the Pittsboro Navigators!

Chatham County Blogs - Mon, 04/03/2017 - 21:43
Thanks to the Pittsboro Navigators Troop 133, who spent a recent beautiful Saturday cleaning up trash at Town Lake Park! They scoured the park and really made a huge difference. They even got a lesson in ecology and conservation by area naturalist Jennifer Platt DrPH, owner of TickWarriors. Their work was done in conjunction with the Haw River Assembly's annual Clean-Up-a-Thon which boasts:
  • 16 teams
  • 249 volunteers
  • 336 bags of trash
  • 35 tires collected from the Haw River and its feeder streams. 
Town Lake Park, of course, is the empoundment of Robeson Creek, which empties into the Haw River before continuing to Jordan Lake. The work of the Navigators may have impacts well beyond the park, since according to Clean Jordan Lake, 80% of the trash in Jordan Lake comes from the tributaries flowing into it. 
It's always encouraging to see our community demonstrate in action how much they value their parks and natural areas. Yay volunteers!
