10th Annual Lytle Creek Day planned

The annual nature observance and celebration of Wilmington’s recreational Lytle Creek Greenway will be held Saturday, Oct. 3 with the 10th Lytle Creek Day at 1 p.m. at the trailhead pavilion off Davids Drive.

The Lytle Creek League of Conservators is hosting the annual event that will include the awarding of Conservators of the Year designations upon two persons whose commitment to the protection of natural resources and dedication to quality of life issues have been outstanding.

Officials will share information on the progress of Stuckey Farm Park, which is part of the greenway. A light lunch will be provided.

The Lytle Creek League of Conservators was founded in 2003 by Roy Joe Stuckey, with the vision of creating a greenway throughout Wilmington. The goal of the League is to facilitate the conservation of the Lytle Creek riparian corridor.

This “linear park”, complete with stream views, trees and wildlife, is intended to be a source of pleasure for generations to come.

In 2004, the first section of the greenway was officially designated in cooperation with Wilmington College, the Clinton County Commissioners and the Lytle Creek League of Conservators, beginning at Davids Drive and continuing to the Wilmington College Arboretum.

There it connects with the 4-C Bicentennial Trail, a paved bike path that travels along Lytle Creek to Southeast Neighborhood Park on Paris Ave.
