ALERT: The Soddy-Daisy Chapter of the TTA has changed its name to the Scenic City Chapter and will post its hikes under this new name starting in July.

Tuesday, June 14 – May Prairie State Natural Area Field Trip, Manchester, a wildflower stroll, a few miles, easy. Dennis Horn will be our expert guide for this special trip.  Dennis is a charter member of the Tennessee Native Plant Society and an editor of the field guide “Wildflowers of Tennessee, the Ohio Valley and the Southern Appalachians.” May Prairie is one of the State’s most floristically diverse natural areas with 25 of its more than 300 plant species considered rare in Tennessee. We should see Mock Bishop’s Weed, Coppery Saint Johnswort, Marsh Pea, Swamp Candles and more. Meet at 9:00 am CT at the Asbury Road Parking Lot, or for carpooling from the Chattanooga area, meet in the lot on the far side of La Quinta Inn, north off I-24 at Exit 175, Brown’s Ferry, at 8:30 am ET. Directions to Asbury Road Parking Lot: From I-24 take the Manchester Exit 114. Proceed south on US 41 away from Manchester for a little over one mile. May Prairie is on the north side of US 41 across from an auto salvage business. A small parking area for the Natural Area is on Asbury Road on the right about one and a half miles off US 41. Wear long pants and waterproof hiking boots. Bring a lot of water, snacks, insect repellent, sunscreen, and a camera.
