March 3rd Gales Creek Preserve Workday:

10-12, trail work
12-12:30, hike

Gales Creek Preserve is in Carteret County, a 2 hour drive from Wilmington, so we suggest leaving around 7:45-8 am.

What: 10-12  Trail Work: We will be doing trail maintenance at our Gales Creek Preserve. This will include removal of branches, leaves, or any obstructions on the trail.

12-12:30 Find it in the Forest Hike: Each volunteer will receive one of our “Find it in the Forest” guides- a guide that helps the user determine whether or not they are walking through a healthy longleaf forest- and explore some of our Longleaf Pine stands at our Gales Creek Preserve.

What to bring: Water bottle, garden hand tool (if already owned), bagged lunch (optional)

What to wear: We require long pants and close-toed shoes. We suggest long sleeves, gloves, and a hat

If you do not have everything in the suggested things to bring and wear, the Coastal Land Trust will provide: Gloves, hand tools, water, snacks, sunscreen, bug spray, first aid kit
