Lower Howards Creek Nature Preserve


Lower Howard’s Creek Guided Hike May 19 2018

Join us for a hike in areas not open to the general public on Lower Howard’s Creek Nature Preserve. Maybe you’ve been on the John Holder Trail, but that was just the beginning. Photo ShareShops, along with a member of the Lower Howards Creek board of directors, takes you to some of the amazing places on this preserve.

We will meet at the main entrance to the preserve, a gated drive on the left of Athens Boonesboro road just before you begin the descent to Halls on the River and the John Holder Trail. It is not well marked but there is a sign.

We will meet Saturday morning at 9:00. The hike, which is moderately strenuous, will take us down to where some renovation efforts are, and to areas of the creek that are generally off limits. We will take our time at several of the more scenic places, allowing us time to make the images we seek.   This is much more leisurely than any of the guided hikes they sporadically offer, and will go to more places than those events.


If we have had heavy rain just prior to the ShareShop it is likely the hike may be too difficult, in which case we will reschedule. There are no refunds, but amounts paid can be applied to any Photo ShareShop. If we are expecting only light rains the ShareShop will be held.


As anytime you do outdoors activities, there are the hazards of bug bites and stings, snakes (including venomous) bites, and other normal forest and outdoor hazards. We will likely be wading in a creek, and that poses the hazard both to you as a participant and to gear that may fall in the creek. Please read and understand the liability release for these. This is a required disclaimer for our insurance company and you should understand the hazards of outdoor photography and taking images along or in a creek.


The workshop cost is $50.00. Final payment must be made by May 1, 2018. When you make your reservation you will receive an email with further instructions. A portion of the workshop cost goes to the Lower Howard’s Creek Preserve.
