TN native wildflower, the passion flower


Field Trips 2018

Field trips are designed to promote informed interest in Tennessee’s native plants. They are led by persons familiar with native plants of the area and are open to nonmembers as well as members.

May Prairie hike Hike at May Prairie with Todd Crabtree.

It is the custom to share knowledge, compare experiences, and ask questions. Since conservation is a primary objective of TNPS, plant collecting is never part of the trips. These hike descriptions usually include a mention of the physical difficulty, but for safety each person must judge their own abilities.

Trips are rarely cancelled, however, sometimes changes are unavoidable. Please contact the trip leader a day or two before the trip for possible changes and to alert the leader that you plan to attend. You are encouraged to attend as many trips as you can. Check here for updates to this schedule.
