Seminar: Dr Larry Pounds, Plants of the Cumberland Trail
April 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Dr. Larry Pounds
Dr. Larry Pounds earned his doctorate in plant ecology from the University of Tennessee. Since then he has been fortunate enough to make a living mostly “hiking around” looking for rare plants. He has worked as a botanical consultant for several organizations, currently TVA and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. He serves on the boards of the Tennessee Native Plant Society, Tennessee Citizens for Wilderness Planning and Cumberland Trails Conference. He often leads wildflower walks for the public. With his recent semi-retirement Larry has discovered the joy of writing. He is co-author of Wildly Strolling Along about the Cumberland Trail and is currently writing a novel, Family Scent.
The seminar topic is Plants of the Cumberland Trail: Spring Wildflowers. There will be a short introduction to the Cumberland Trail (CT). Then we will see and talk about special examples of spring wildflowers along the CT and where they can be visited. Trilliums will be an emphasis. Hopefully, I will be able to answer some questions using the chat option.
The Tennessee Native Plant Society is hosting monthly Native Plant Seminars during 2021. These seminars are held via Zoom on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Central Time (7:30 p.m. Eastern Time) and lasting about one hour.
