After a night camping at Pink Beds, the class drove west for Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, a small section of The Slickrock Wilderness just outside Robbinsville, NC. and one of the most famous old growth stands in the region. At Joyce Kilmer, students had a chance to study and experience old growth structure, function and composition and were treated to perfect timing for spring ephemeral wildflowers.
