Peak of Autumn at Penny's Bend
Event is Full: Accepting Wait List Registrations
A two-mile hike through the fall landscape of this 84-acre natural area in northeast Durham. Surrounded on three sides by the Eno River, Penny’s Bend Nature Preserve encompasses mature forests and prairies with regionally rare plants. Explore the fall scenery as you learn about how the Garden manages this unique property. Much of this hike is on primitive trails over uneven terrain, with one short, steep climb up from the river. Wear sturdy hiking footwear and bring a walking stick, insect repellant and water. Meeting spot supplied upon registration. $18 ($16 Members)
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Fall Silent Walk

Join us for a leisurely, quiet guided walk on our Piedmont Nature Trails. Our trained Garden Guides will give suggestions on how to focus on the world around you using your senses of sight, touch, hearing, and smell as you silently hike along the trails. The walk will wrap up with a chance to share your experiences with each other.
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
