Join the Neuse River Hawks Conservationists for their monthly nature walk. This month the chapter will explore the Rolesville Main Street Park. We will be walking over easy, asphalt surfaces.
Rolesville Main Street Park is very different from the Granite Falls Greenway, which has large boulders but no flatrock. The park has granite flatrocks, but few boulders. Interesting plants and animals are part of this granite flatrock community. There is a good population of the uncommon Six-lined Racerunner, along with anoles, fence lizards, and skinks. Black Jack Oaks are here, as well as the rare Sticky Catchfly, which blooms in the spring and early summer.
We will park in the back parking lot of Rolesville Main Street Park, not the lot on Main Street. Directions: Follow Rogers Rd. from Main St. in Wake Forest through Heritage and into the edge of Rolesville. Before Rogers Rd. hits 401, turn left at the stoplight for Granite Falls Blvd. There is a SECU at this intersection. (The address for the SECU is 5801 Rogers Rd.) The first turn to the right is the entrance to the parking lot.
There are restrooms halfway through the walk, but not at the parking lot. Contact Pat Amyx at 919 – 219 – 5020 if you need more information. No prior registration is required.
