Plant-insect symbiosis focus of hike

Written by 

Blue Ridge Parkway rangers will lead a “Sweet Summer Nectar” hike to the meadow near Sams Knob beginning at 10 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 17.

The easy to moderate, 2.5-mile round-trip hike will focus on the relationship between summer wildflowers and insects. Meet at the Black Balsam Parking Area at the end of Forest Service Road 816 (MP 420), about one mile south of Graveyard Fields. Bring water and sunscreen; wear good walking shoes; and be prepared for changeable weather.

828.298.5330, ext. 304, for details.
