Field Trip: Van Buren County Powerline
September 3 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Description: This is a joint outing for TNPS and TCWP. This is a new powerline for our fall wildflower outing. It will require a bit more driving. Hopefully some of the bog orchids will still be in bloom but mostly we will be seeing goldenrods and asters. We will be able to mix driving and walking. This will be handy if it is a hot day.
- Shell Station on the south side of the Peavine exit in Crossville (9 AM central time, 10 AM eastern time)
- 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 a.m. Eastern
Difficulty: This should work for those with limited walking ability. We will walk on a flattish gravel road with a short outing into a boggy area for the adventurous. For those who want this can be mostly a driving trip with stops. The road in is a little rough but quite drivable for most vehicles. We can carpool, covid permitting
Facilities: the meeting places
Lunch: Bring water, lunch, and bug spray
