The University of Tennessee Arboretum Society will host a meet-and-greet followed by a fall wildflower walk at Haw Ridge Trails on Saturday, September 2. The event is scheduled from 9-11 a.m.
Kris Light, an expert naturalist, educator, and photographer will lead this fun, educational, and easy walk, a press release said. Participants may want to bring a camera to take pictures of the many wildflowers, the release said.
Describing the walk, Light said, “Most people think of springtime as wildflower season, but late summer and fall color the fields and roadsides in gold, purple and white. Come to the fall wildflower walk to learn more about the wildflowers of the fields.”
Those who attend will meet at the large parking lot at Haw Ridge. There is a kiosk there that has the trail maps.
“It will be a large group and hard to miss,” organizers said.
For more information on the wildflower walk or the UT Arboretum Society, call (865) 483-7277.
This is a free program offered by the University of Tennessee Arboretum Society.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
