Field Trip: Wells Hill Park, Lincoln County

April 9 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Description:  Wells Hill Park is the former water supply for the city of Fayetteville. It became the first gravity flow water system in the United States and supplied water to Fayetteville from 1904 to 1954. The 114-acre tract contains a hollow with three ravines, each with a small waterfall and numerous springs. The area is wooded and the slopes provide impressive displays of wildflowers in the spring. With the help of the TN Parks and Greenways Foundation a conservation buyer purchased the property at auction on June 30, 2012. It has recently become a Lincoln County nature preserve. TNPS produced a plant list for the park as part of a field trip in 2013. This year we will simply enjoy the beauty of the area and the numerous plants we find.
