Afternoon Wander at Tory’s Woods on Sunday, July 9th. 1-3 pm (or so). Meet at the UPLC office to carpool/caravan as parking is limited, or, meet at the Preserve at about 1:25 if you’re coming from the East. We’ll hike the North Loop, about 2 miles. While there’s not a lot of elevation change, the ground is mostly loose chunks of sandstone so sturdy boots and hiking poles are recommended. This shady, protected preserve is an amazing getaway just on the edge of town.

Restoration Thursdays at the Chocolay Bayou! For more information, visit the “volunteer” page. Thursdays from 8:30-3:30, July 20th, 27th, August 3, 10, 17.
