It’s going to a beautiful day in the neighborhood! Come and join us at the RibbonWalk Nature Preserve!

Have you been to see this wonderful place in Mecklenburg County? RibbonWalk is a 188-acre urban forest that is only four miles from center city Charlotte. The preserve protects a diversity of forest and wetland habitats, including one of the oldest American beech tree groves in the region. Why not join us this Saturday, November 9th, from 9:00 until 12:00 for some service, fun, and a chance to spend some time in nature?
