Field Trip: Ghost River SNA-Walker Tract, Fayette County

July 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Description:  In 2022, the Walker Tract which contains the rare sand post oak community was added to the Ghost River State Natural Area. In September 2023, the West Tennessee Stewardship Ecologist led the first natural areas event to this rare community. This year the event is in July when most plants are flowering including hoary skullcap, whitemouth dayflower, and false boneset. 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.  Visit the Natural Areas Website to register.

Meeting Place/Time:  The LaGrange Post Office just south of the Hwy. 57 and Main St. intersection at 10:00 AM Central.

Difficulty:  The event is considered easy. It is recommended that participants wear insect repellent that repels ticks.

Facilities:  Possibly at nearby businesses adjacent to the Post Office in LaGrange.

Lunch:  After the hike, possibly at a café nearby in LaGrange if it is open.

Leader:  Allan Trently  (731-234-4887)
