Field Trip: Devil’s Breakfast Table Scour Prairies, Morgan County

May 25 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Description: This is sponsored by TNPS and TCWP. We will explore the Devil’s Breakfast Table Area including a short bushwhack to a small prairie area that is kept open by erosion during flood events. We will spend more time on other places in the same general area if the prairie is flooded. This is a spot to see the federally listed Cumberland rosemary.

Meeting Places/Times:  1. Marathon Gas Station (52 Main St, Crab Orchard) at the Crab Orchard exit (329) off I-40 east of Crossville (9:00 AM Central, 10:00 AM Eastern) (35.908715047614265, -84.87526755741177)  2. Oak Ridge at the Gold’s Gym/Books-A-Million parking lot (meet at the end close to S. Illinois Avenue, near Salsarita’s) in time to leave Oak Ridge at 8:45 AM Eastern

Difficulty: Some may find the short bushwhack difficult. They may opt to spend that part of our time in other easily accessible areas.

Facilities: At meeting places

Lunch: Bring water, lunch, and bug spray

Leader: Larry Pounds. If you RSVP it helps with planning and allows contacting about changes, Phone/email: 865-705-8516, PoundsL471@aol.com
