BioBlitz at The Farm Community, Summertown
We will join Dr. Dwayne Estes, Executive Director of the Southeastern Grasslands Initiative, Botanical Explorer at BRIT, and Professor of Biology at Austin Peay State University, for a BioBlitz of the prairie barrens at The FarmCommunity. This is a joint hike with Swan Conservation Trust. Our focus will be on the flora, but we will also note the pollinators of the ecosystem and any animals and birds that we may encounter. We should be treated with a variety of grasses and late summer wildflowers that are typical of many southeastern grasslands. NOTE: This trip is scheduled for Sunday.
Difficulty: Easy, but the weather may be very hot. Dress appropriately and bring sunscreen and plenty of water.
If this event is canceled due to rain we will conduct the hike on 8/18.
