Join us next spring!

Each spring, the rich ecosystem in the coves and hollows of
Sequatchie Valley awakens with enthusiasm.

Emerging ragwort, buckeye, bloodroot, trout lily, trilliums, redbuds, and dogwood blossoms dazzle the eyes of the
adventurous as expert naturalists, ethnobotanists, and foresters guide groups of hikers through the wilds of the Southeast Tennessee bioregion.

four acres of surrounding Permaculture landscape, hand-crafted structures, and Pipsissewa Arboretum Trail.

3:00pm: Take part in a more rugged hike along Hick’s Creek and up the canyon.
