An Expedition at Secluded Farm
Join Devin Floyd, president of the Blue Ridge Discovery Center, for an inquiry into the habitat variety and diversity at the Secluded Farm tract of the Monticello Trail. Devin will guide you on an exploration of the factors that influence habitat variation upon the farm’s rich woodlands and fields. Topics such as geology, soil drainage, land use history, slope, aspect and elevation will be explored. The two-hour hike begins at the Trailhead parking lot with a look at diversity in the Kemper Park rain-water retaining pools.
