Shining Rock Wilderness Bumble Bee Hike

June 29, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Join Us for a Bumble Bee Hike in Shining Rock Wilderness!

Saturday, June 29th


About the Event: Come search for the Rusty Patched Bumble Bee with Morgan, Wild South conservation biologist!

Where to Meet: Meet at the Ingles in Candler at 9:00 am. We will carpool to the Sam Knob trailhead. (If meeting the group at the trailhead, please let us know when signing up, and plan to arrive at 10:00 am.)

Information About the Hike: The Sam Knob & Flat Laurel Creek loop is approximately 3.7 miles, and is classified as moderate. Expect significant elevation change, and rooty/rocky soil. For a good description of what to expect, click here.

What to Bring: Bring a backpack with snacks, lunch, and plenty of drinking water. You will need your cell phone, specimen jar, and a digital or phone camera. We recommend wearing weather-appropriate clothing, shoes with adequate tread, and long pants due to the presence of ticks this time of year.

RSVP Required: Group size is very limited for this hike! To sign up, please email morgan@wildsouth.org
