Based on the current weather forecast, our next Chatham Park rescue will be this Saturday 17 March at the Eubanks Rd site. The forecast is calling for a low of 29 and a high of 53 so we'll start at 9:00 - by then the sun may have warmed it a bit and the winds will be light but dress accordingly.
Use 34 Eubanks Rd, Pittsboro as the GPS address for the parking area where we'll meet. Please register either on the NCNPS Members Only site or send me an e-mail letting me know you'll be coming.
On our last rescue we found windflower (flowering), meadow rue, hexastylis airifolia (starting to flower), Ebony Spleenwort, Christmas Fern, Rattlesnake Fern and Grape Fern as well as partridgeberry. We have also seen mayapple emerging and spicebush can't be far behind. We will plan on visiting the upper middle of the site.
As a reminder, all participants must sign our release of liability for each rescue, both to ensure they are aware of the dangers and as our record of rescuers. I'll have a copy of he liability form with me at the site for everyone to sign.
