Join the Western North Carolina Alliance and Creation Care Alliance of WNC on a beautiful, Sunday afternoon hike from 1-5 p.m. Nov. 2 on the Glassy Mountain Trail at the Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site.
We’ll have ecological guidance, as well as an interfaith reflection, as we soak in the late colors of autumn. This hike is free and open to all ages.
Registration is required.
Meeting place & time:
1 p.m. Nov. 2 in Earth Fare’s parking lot in Westgate Shopping Center, and organize a carpool to Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site , about a 35-minute drive. We’ll return to Earth Fare no later than 5 p.m.
What to Expect:
This is about a 1.5 mile round trip hike that starts flat and ends with a moderate climb to the top of Glassy Mountain. We’ll hike slowly on the climb, taking in the beautiful surroundings, before reaching the awe inspiring vista of Mount Pisgah and beyond. Josh Kelly, WNCA’s field biologist, will interpret the flora and fauna along the way, and Pastor Scott Hardin-Nieri of CCAWNC will lead an interfaith spiritual reflection.
What to Bring/Wear:
• Water bottle (and snacks if you like)
• Medications for any allergies, etc.
• Supportive shoes
• *Be prepared for rainy or cold weather – raincoat, warm jacket/layers as needed*
We are greatly looking forward to our first ever joint WNCA & Creation Care Alliance of WNC outing!
