EENC is teaming up with the Association of Experiential Education's Southeast Region for a field trip to Chimney Rock State Park on Friday, February 28. Chimney Rock State Park and the Hickory Nut Gorge, featured in the 90s film Last of the Mohicans, are two of the most beautiful natural areas in North Carolina. This trip will provide opportunities for learning about the geography, geology, flora, fauna, and ecology of the area while hiking several trails including one to the well-known Hickory Nut Falls. The hikes will utilize the Grasshopper Method popularized by Paul Petzoldt to take advantage of teachable moments as they arise. Come join us for fun adventure!
Transportation will depart from Kanuga Conference Center at 10:00 am and return by 5:00 pm. If you prefer to meet us there, please indicate that during registration and we'll be in touch with the details.
Lunch will be provided at the Old Rock Cafe.
