Sewanee Herbarium Summer 2018 Calendar of Events

 

Introduction to Nature Journaling —Sat., July 14, 10: a.m. –– Mary Priestley

Learn about nature journaling and make a sample journal “page” to take home. Choose from quotations, observations, sketches, pressed plants, and more to organize your page. Who knows? You may discover that nature journaling is a wonderful way to bring your outdoor memories to life. Meet in the Herbarium (Spencer room 171) for this one-hour indoor workshop.

 

Foster Falls—Sat., Aug. 4, 9:00 a,m, — Trae Moore

This has long been a favorite spot for late season wildflowers that thrive in the open sun, such as blazing star and numerous asters. Meet at the Foster Falls parking area for this one- to two-hour easy walk in the power line right-of-way above the gorge with optional short but steep trek to the bottom of the falls and back to see some trees and ferns. Contact the South Cumberland State Park Visitors’ Center for directions (931-924-2980). Want to take a dip after the walk? Bring your suit! Foster Falls is also a wonderful place for a picnic.

 

The herbarium sponsors a nature journaling group that meets Thursdays, 9:00-11:00 a.m. led by Mary Priestley. All are welcome. This summer the group is meeting at Lake Cheston. Email Mary for more information.

 

All times are CST or CDT.

 

Wear appropriate shoes on all of these walks. Risks involved in hiking include physical exertion, rough terrain, forces of nature, and other hazards not present in everyday life. Picking flowers and digging plants are prohibited in all of the above-mentioned natural areas.
