A Natural and Un-Natural History of Cappy’s Trails

On October 10, 2018, the Natural History Society led an exploration of the wild and re-wilding pathways of Cappy’s Trails in the Quimper Wildlife Corridor (QWC). We investigated Jefferson Land Trust’s flagship conservation project with Preserve Steward Kathy Darrow. She focused on how the landscape is restoring itself, with some help from Land Trust volunteers, after 100+ years of colonization.

Pileated Woodpeckers, vintage vehicles, terrestrial orchids, English holly, natural wetlands, and sewer lines are all part of this complex blend of mixed coniferous forest and 20th century human influences.
