Wild Ideas for Farms & Forests @ NC Museum of Natural Sciences
Mar 12 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Wild Ideas for Farms & Forests @ NC Museum of Natural Sciences

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.

Chapel Hill is a wonderful place for the outdoor enthusiast.  Whether you’re headed to the Johnston Mill Nature Preserve, the Eno River, or Occoneechee Mountain, our staff will make sure that your time outdoors is as comfortable as you want it to be. As manager Chad Pickens knows, there’s nothing more important than being prepared.

Our store carries the top brands and products so you can fly fish, canoe, kayak, and go backpacking in safety. We offer everything from carabiners and headlamps to dehydrated food and camping stoves. If it involves the outdoors, we carry it, and if we don’t have it, we’ll find it for you! Our expert staff will explain the differences between the products to you, and help you select the one that fits you best. Whether you want just the essentials for a day pack, or are planning a hike through Europe, we’ll get you on your way.

New to outdoor exploration? Our staff can suggest Chapel Hill hiking trips , paddling trips, andtrail runs. Chapel Hill is where we live, work, and play, although sometimes work and play seem like the same thing at Great Outdoor Provision Co. Come check out our store today, and we’ll set you up for adventure!
