Description: Since this is a scheduled natural areas event, you must register as it is open to everyone, so TNPS members that want to join should sign up early here: https://tnstateparks.com/parks/event_details/division–of–natural–areas/#/?event=exploring–the–sands–of–ghost–river–state–natural–area. There is a limit of 20 participants. Be the first to explore the newly acquired sand hill community at Ghost River State Natural Area. The community is the only place in Tennessee to see sand post oak and capillary hair sedge and one of the few areas to see Plukenet’s flat–sedge. For this event, we will meet in the Mineral Slough parking lot and car-pool over to the sand hill community. The event is considered easy. It is recommended that participants wear insect repellent that repels ticks. There is no fee for this program.
