Just 45 minutes from Chattanooga, TN, between Dunlap & Whitwell, the rich ecosystem in the coves and hollows of Sequatchie Valley is waking up with enthusiasm!

Join us among emerging ragwort, buckeye, bloodroot, trout lily, trilliums, redbuds, and dogwood blossoms as we walk with expert naturalists, ethnobotanists, and foresters familiar with the SE Tennessee bioregion.

We have three Saturdays set aside for this event: March 30, April 6, and April 13. Choose the date that works best for you!

All ages are welcome! As we are a wildlife refuge area, pets stay home.

The suggested donation for the Springtime Wildflower Hikes is $8. Family rates are available, so bring the whole bunch!
