Field Trip: Late Spring Plants in Jackson and Clay Counties
May 7 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Description: Jackson and Clay counties have some beautiful, rugged country nestled in the hills and hollows along the Cumberland River and its tributaries. In 2018 we explored areas along the Roaring River and Spring Creek south of the Cumberland R. This trip will take us to places north of the Cumberland R. to see plants that flower late in the spring. Plants we plan to see include Guyandotte Beauty (Synandra hispidula), Chapman’s Meadow Parsnip (Thaspium chapmanii), Appendaged Waterleaf (Hydrophyllum appendiculatum), and Miami Mist (Phacelia purshii). We will caravan along the rural roads with frequent stops to explore the hillsides.
Meeting Place/Time: Love’s Travel Stop (includes McDonalds and Subway) on I-40 at exit 280, 7 miles west of Cookeville near Baxter TN at 10:00 am Central.
Difficulty: Easy all day roadside botany.
Facilities: At meeting place.
