Wildflower Greenway Walk
April 30 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
TCWP will sponsor a wildflower walk on Oak Ridge’s Wildflower Greenway on April 30. We’ll meet at 9 a.m. at the eastern trailhead for the Wildflower Greenway Trail. The trailhead is located on East Vanderbilt Drive between the intersections with Valparaiso and Villanova Roads (http://tnlandforms.us/greenways/maps03/wf.html).
The Greenway trail is only 0.8 mile one way, but packs a lot of wildflower punch for such a short trail. We should see a lot of the same flowers we usually see earlier in the month at the Garlic Mustard Pull, but we should also see some other interesting flowers that bloom a little later in the spring. Last year we were intrigued to find an unusual white form of Vasey’s trillium (normally red).
The trail is moderately difficult and can be muddy. There is at least one small stream crossing. Participants should dress accordingly, and it’s always good to bring plenty of water and snacks in case you get hungry.
