Orange Market


This field trip will allow us to see the Peter’s Mountain Mallow in bloom. This rare and endemic species. The leader is Sam Truslow, a Nature Conservancy Land Steward.

This field trip is limited to 12 participants. It is located in Giles County near Narrows, VA. We will carpool from the Orange Market in Salem at the corner of Thompson Blvd and Rte 311.  What to bring: walking stick, sturdy boots, bug juice, lunch, rain gear and lots of water.

Since this is a limited field trip… contact Butch Kelly at (540) 384-7429 or if you intend to participate by June 1. The first 12 folks will be notified by June 2.

We will meet at 8:00 a.m. to beat a possible hot day. We will be climbing about 1000 ft over a steep 3/4 mile hike. Footing is not really solid in some places. The hike is off trail so sturdy hiking boots are a must. A walking stick would be a help as well.

Timeline for the day:

  • 8:00 a.m. depart Orange Market
  • 9:15 a.m. arrive at Narrows, VA
  • 9:30 – 10:30 a.m. hike to mallow site
