Saturday, May 4 from 10am-1pm: WCMS Meet-up at the Annie Louise Wilkerson, MD Nature Reserve Park

Dr. Annie Louise WilkersonWCMS Members are invited to a Saturday morning of fun, fellowship, learning, and restoration as we meet at the Annie Louise Wilkerson, MD Nature Preserve Park in North Raleigh on Saturday, May 4 from 10am-1pm. Dr. Wilkerson was an OB/Gyn surgeon and practiced medicine for 53 years in Wake County. She was beloved by her patients and fellow physicians.

Dr. Wilkerson donated all her property in 2006 to Wake County to be used as a nature preserve. If she were still living, this year would have been her 100th birthday. We will honor her memory by enjoying her beautiful 157-acre nature preserve and hearing remarks from her colleague, Mary Susan Fulghum, MD. A Naturalist will lead us on a hike — young and old — to the beaver dams from 10:30 to 11:30am. We will learn about these amazing mammals and discuss other fauna and flora that are found on the walk to and from the pond. In addition, there will be time to socialize, play games, and enjoy lunch catered by City Barbecue from 11:45am to 1pm.

A small fee of $10/per adult; $5/per child will be charged to help offset our costs. Attendees may pay onsite by cash, check or Venmo. To RSVP or for more information, please send an email to [email protected]; or call Shawn Scott at 919-719-4170.
