In the 1970's a group formed to protect the land know today as Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve. In 1995, the Cary Woman's Cluf provided infrastructure and officers to begin creating a new support volunteer organization for Hemlock Bluffs and the Nature Center. In 2001, Board Members felt that local citizens sholuld know that this organization's mission is to support the nature center, the nature preserve, and the environmental education programs/events and projects. At this time, the Board adopted the name The Friends of Hemlock Bluffs. Since then the FOHB have started a paver project for anyone to remember or honor a family member, love one, friend, etc. and as of today approximately 121 pavers are in the center of the nature center courtyard. Also the FOHB have purchased three garden art items which can be found in the courtyard gardens (dragonfly, butterfly, & spider). The Friends are able to do these projects through a group effort and many volunteers each fall with their annual Recycle Yard Sale where profits help with all they do for the preserve and nature center. Last year the Friends even started a scholarship program ($50) to be used for programs at Hemlock Bluffs.
