What: Taylor Hollow Wildflower Walk
Description: As the first property acquired by the Tennessee Chapter of the Nature Conservancy, Taylor Hollow State Natural Area is renowned for its floral display and a number of state-listed plant species. Along with enjoying a great display of spring wild- flowers and learning a bit about their ecology, we’ll discuss some of the forest types and trees within the natural area. These hikes are moderate and those accustomed to hiking should have no problems. Dress appropriately for the weather, and bring water and snacks.
