This past summer’s drought reminded us that the availability of water has always been a concern for Sewanee and other plateau communities. Join geology professor Martin Knoll and Herbarium curator Mary Priestley for a walk to learn about water as a resource for inhabitants of the plateau — plants and animals, as well as humans. Meet at Snowden Hall, room 215, at 9:30 AM to caravan to the site of an easy 1-mile walk, which will include Hodgson’s Pond, Abbo’s Alley, and Tremlett and ATO springs (the latter pictured here on a chilly day earlier this winter). In case of inclement weather, we will remain in Snowden for an informal talk on the subject.
