More than a botanist, Luke Cannon is an avid naturalist and long time pursuer and teacher of our astounding natural world. His passions for exploring and appreciating the magical ecological intricacies of our living planet have inspired his studies of plants, birds, insects, lichens, fungi and more. Cannon offers regular classes and walks in Western North Carolina to share his knowledge of the local ecology and his enthusiasm for building closer relationships with the wilds around us. Cannon’s walk will concentrate on trees and woody plants in our woodlands. This walk will meet at the FENCE Center, March 31 at 9 a.m.

This event is made possible by the Kirby Endowment at the Polk County Community Foundation
