Most people who visit Neacoxie Forest Habitat Reserve don’t go any farther than the coastal prairie (where we planted violets in November 2015). But fall is a lovely time to explore further and visit the forested banks of Neacoxie Creek, when leaves on the ancient crabapple trees are turning color and mushrooms are popping out of the ground. This property also has a chronic holly problem, with invasive holly seedlings routinely appearing. Join us for this Halloween stewardship day and experience the magic of Neacoxie Creek in the fall.

Please email Stewardship Director Melissa Reich at melissar@nclctrust.org if you plan to come; she will provide directions and further details. NCLC will provide the necessary tools. Wear gloves and work boots. Bring drinking water and a lunch/snacks; there are no toilets on the site, and no potable water. Dogs are not allowed on NCLC properties.
