A request from our friends at Piedmont Land Conservancy

Hike-A-Thon is Piedmont Land Conservancy’s new effort to raise funds and awareness for local land conservation.  We are looking for dedicated folks to commit to a New Year’s Day hike at a PLC-related property and then ask friends, neighbors, coworkers and family to sponsor their hike and commitment to conservation!  Thanks to our sponsor,  100% of the money raised during Hike-A-Thon will be used for conservation efforts right here in the Piedmont!  We have ten suggested hikes, with the trails at the Knight-Brown Nature Preserve being our main site.  Hikes for all skill levels are available (and you can hike elsewhere if you like).  You can register as an individual or create a hiking team with family, co-workers or other groups. Help us make this event a success in our first year!  Connect with nature, stand up for conservation and make a difference!
