Join Tar River Land Conservancy from 9 to 11 a.m. for a tour of Cascine Plantation, just south of Louisburg. Included will be a hike along Cedar Creek to the old grist mill. The mill and plantation buildings are antebellum, historic treasures located near Louisburg in Franklin County. Learn about scenic Cedar Creek, the ongoing renovation of the millworks, and the history of the plantation. Bring snacks and water for your walk, and a picnic lunch to enjoy on large, flat rocks at the creek, or in a shaded spot near the mill. Wear sturdy shoes and appropriate clothing. Attendees will gather for the event along Bennette Perry Road near the intersection with U.S. 401. To register, visit www.tarriver.org or call 919-496-5902.
