TLC’s Wild Ideas series provides a dynamic venue for experts and the community to share innovative ideas to improve lives through conservation. At Wild Ideas for Farms and Forests on March 12, we’ll hear how local groups are building climate resilience and closing gaps in our food systems through meaningful actions.
Climate change may seem like an insurmountable problem, but at Wild Ideas for Farms and Forests we’ll explore how to address gaps in the local food system using regenerative farming practices to sequester carbon while supporting our local food scene and inspiring a love for the outdoors. Wild Ideas for Farms and Forests will also highlight the crucial work of partner organizations and community leaders who are working alongside one another to build thriving and healthy communities around the Triangle. We hope you’ll leave with wild ideas about how you can build climate resilience at home and work.
Among other things, at Wild Ideas for Farms and Forests guests will learn more about TLC’s Williamson Preserve, a mosaic of farm fields, forests, and streams just outside of Raleigh. The 405-acre Williamson Preserve, opening April 25, will host farmers, several unique ecosystems, and hiking and mountain biking trails that will connect to the Neuse River Greenway Trail, East Coast Greenway, and Mountains-to-Sea Trail.
About this Event
A very comprehensive one day course for 8 students. We’ve packed a lot of information into an 8 hour day, including: casting, knots, equipment, fishing strategies and fly selection, for coldwater, warmwater and saltwater species. Beginners can expect to learn the skills that will allow them to catch fish on their own, and intermediate level fly fishers can advance their casting skills and fill in some holes in their technical knowledge. We provide all equipment, including a textbook, as well as lunch and drinks. Just bring a willingness to have fun and learn, but register early, they fill up fast.
