Summer Picnic 2017

Summer Picnic, July 15, 2017

We have reserved Shelter #1 at Latta Plantation Nature Preserve.  While our picnic will be planned from noon to 4:00 pm, we have the shelter from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm for anyone who wants to come early or stay late.  This shelter is next to the paved parking lot, a horseshoe pit, and a SAND VOLLEYBALL COURT.  (If you want to get a volleyball game going, please bring a ball.  Or a bucket for sand castles.)  Details on our other activities are still being worked out, but we know that Charlotte Blue Ridge Mensa will be providing the burgers, dogs, and buns!

The nature preserve has a wide variety of activities available for those who don’t just want to eat and run.  You can go kayaking (single or tandem), visit the Carolina Raptor Center, take a house tour of Historic Latta Plantation, or just take a personal hike on their sixteen miles of trails.  (Watch your step, though – thirteen miles are shared with horses.)

Come early, have your own adventure, then come share your story!
