Greenway Speaker Series: Hiking on the Appalachian Trail

Saturday, September 21, 2019 - 10:00am until 11:00am

Dottie Buchan will teach us about her experiences through-hiking the Appalachian Trail. She will humorously present the dos and don'ts of planning for a hike, what gear to take and how to prep your food stores. You will be entertained with pictures and stories and perhaps even be convinced to try the hike yourself. Dottie Buchan is one of 2010's Thru-Hiker's of the Appalachian Trail, and a facilitator/instructor with a couple of decades of successful experience inspiring children and adults to take charge of their education. Dottie specializes in humorous presentations and regularly attends training sessions in her multiple career moves to showcase new areas in which to enrich her students. A strong believer in the power of positive thinking in the workplace, Dottie has successfully taught a myriad of programming from Lifeguard Training, CPR, Environmental Education, Swimming, GED, English As a Second Language, guitar and trumpet lessons, team-building, and a host of other programming. Dottie currently is a part of the Environmental Education team at the Greenway. She enjoys a good reading binge but can also be found on long hikes on beautiful forested trails. Free for Greenway members | $5 for non-members For more details about this event, please visit the website here.

In 1995, this 2,100 acre nature preserve was dedicated to the public to serve as a natural buffer from urban development and a place for countless activities – from hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding, to picnics, kayaking and more. The Greenway holds a wealth of cultural resources, including the historic Nation Ford Road, which was part of the Great Philadelphia Wagon Road, a pathway that was used by Native Americans, European settlers, Revolutionary and Civil War soldiers, traders and trappers for hundreds of years. In addition, the Greenway contains two circa-1800 log cabins, a dairy barn built in 1946 and the site of the Garrison-Webb gristmill for which Fort Mill is named. A part of Leroy Springs & Company,  Inc. and a site on the SC Ag + Art Tour
