Come and join the Sequatchie Valley Institute staff and friends… and the ragwort, dwarf buckeye, phlox, bloodroot, trout lily, trilliums, wild geranium, dogwoods, redbuds, etc! in the beautiful Sequatchie Valley for our spring wildflower hikes. The hikes will be accompanied by guides familiar with the geography, ecology and biology of the area.

trilliumWe will begin the hike at 12 noon Central Time (1pm Chattanooga time — Eastern Time). You must arrive at our parking area no later than 11am to assemble for the hike. Early birds (10:00 am Central Time) may enjoy a hiking tour of our buildings and gardens. There will be a choice of a long, strenuous hike deep into the Gulf, or a shorter, more relaxed walk. Please be prepared for the hike with long pants, hat, sturdy shoes… and a container of water.

SVI is a land trust and nature preserve. Please do not bring your pets. No pets, no exceptions.

Plan to take lots of pictures! You are welcome to come early to visit our gardens, hand-crafted homes, and crafts gallery, which will be open for purchases of fine nature-based crafts produced by our staff, and specialty books.

Please bring a picnic lunch to eat at one of our beautiful picnic areas in the woods.

A sliding-scale donation of $5-20 will be used for our non-profit educational programs. For directions to SVI, which is located in the Cartwright community half-way between Dunlap and Whitwell, 45 minutes from Chattanooga, or for more information, contact us at 423-949-5922, or email officemanager [at] svionline [dot] org
