    Volunteer Day at Gateway Nature Preserve

    10am-12pm

    We need your help at GNP! Come help us pick up trash in the Meadow, trim back invasive plants, and plant wild flower seeds. We will have some hedge shears, lopping shears, and long handle grippers available for volunteers to use. If any volunteers have any of these tools they can bring to use that would be a big help too. More details on sign up page below.

    Salem Creek at the Gateway Nature Preserve: Geology, Biology & History A guided walk by Jeremy Reiskind

    2-3:30pm

    During a walk around the Gateway Nature Preserve we will see how the creek flows and the major features of a meandering stream.  We will see what lives in and near the creek and what the river deposits can tell us about the underlying bedrock as well as more recent human activities. We will consider how Salem Creek served as a source of power for processing grain in the nineteenth century. All ages welcome, though children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult.
    Park at 1200 S. Broad St. Winston-Salem, NC 27101. Registration is required for this event.

    Evening Wildlife Walk

    7-8:30pm

    Enjoy a walk on the Forest Discovery Trail and in the pollinator garden at Gateway Nature Preserve during the beautiful evening hours. See the flapping of bats, spot a silhouette, or hear the Barred Owl’s call and witness other nocturnal critters come to life to forage and hunt for food. Use your senses to help locate these and other native wildlife as the sun sets and twilight settles, bringing in the glimmer of the cooler summer night air. Individuals and families are welcome to attend, and children must be accompanied by an adult.

    This event is free, but registration is required. Please park in the lot behind Family Services, 1200 S. Broad St., Winston-Salem. The walk will begin adjacent to the parking lot, at Gateway Nature Preserve.
