Florence Preserve is a little gem on US 74A on the way to Chimney Rock. The area is owned and maintained by Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy. The Carolina Mountain Club has helped them maintain this lovely tract with five miles of hiking trails.
Now CMLC is looking to formalize their maintenance efforts. Here’s what they say:
Be a part of CMLC’s new team of volunteers dedicated to helping take care of our Florence Nature Preserve in Gerton! Some have already volunteered at Florence in one capacity or other, but CMLC is now moving towards creating a more formalized team. Volunteers will help in a number of different roles, varying in interest area and time commitment. If you’ve been waiting for an outdoor, hands-on way to volunteer and make a difference with CMLC, we hope that you will be a part of this new team.
Please join us on Saturday, January 22nd @ 10 am at the Gerton Community Center to learn more about the Florence Nature Preserve Management Team. Attendance at the meeting does not sign you up for a volunteer commitment, but will give you the opportunity to learn about the kinds of volunteer help Florence Nature Preserve needs and CMLC’s plans for management.
See our website for more details: CMLC’s Florence Nature Preserve Management Team.
