The original forests of the Blue Ridge had trees of all ages and sizes. Large, old trees were abundant. The onslaught of industrial logging removed most of those forests, but due to the ruggedness of our mountains and sustained conservation over generations, at least 3% of the Southern Blue Ridge is in old-growth condition. Josh Kelly has spent years documenting and protecting old-growth forests on public land. Josh will take you on a 45 minute, coffee inspired, exploration of our region’s old-growth forests, including where to find them, how to recognize them, and the deep values they represent.

Bagels & coffee will be provided for participants. Please come early enough to get settled in before the programming starts at 8.

On-site parking is limited but there is additional public parking within walking distance and several locations on site to lock up bikes if you feel like perusing the Greenway.

We are excited to provide more opportunities in 2024 for our supporters to learn about our work and the places we protect. Check out our other upcoming opportunities on our event calendar.
