Morgan Creek Valley Tour with Johnny Randall, NCBG Director of Conservation; The Morgan Creek Valley in Orange County holds a wealth of natural and cultural heritage, from ice-age rhododendron bluffs and rare plants to American Indians and moonshiners. Come prepared for several short hikes as we explore the length of the Morgan Creek valley, journeying by van from its headwaters near Maple View Farm to the Triassic Basin bottomlands of the Mason Farm Biological Reserve. Preregistration required. Fee includes transportation by van in between tour sites. Come prepared for short hikes, sometimes on uneven ground, where sturdy shoes are recommended. Please bring water, and feel free to bring a walking stick if you wish. Meet at the NCBG visitor parking lot gazebo.
