Van Buren County Power Line Walk
This is a new power line for our fall wildflower outing, a joint outing for TCWP and the Tennessee Native Plant Society. It will require a bit more driving. Hopefully some of the bog orchids will still be in bloom, but mostly we will be seeing goldenrods and asters. We’ll be able to mix driving and walking, which will be handy if it is a hot day.
This outing should work for those with limited walking ability. We will walk on a flattish gravel road, with a short outing into a boggy area for the adventurous. For those who want, this can be mostly a driving trip with stops. The road in is a little rough, but quite drivable for most vehicles. We can carpool, COVID permitting.
We’ll meet for carpooling in Oak Ridge at the Gold’s Gym/Books-A-Million parking lot (at the end close to S. Illinois Avenue, near Salsarita’s) in time to leave Ridge at 8:45 a.m. Eastern, or you can meet the group at the Shell station on the south side of the Peavine Rd. exit in Crossville at 9 a.m. Central time, 10 a.m. Eastern. Bring water, a lunch, and bug spray.
