The UT Arboretum Society’s Annual Fall Wildflower Walk will be held September 21 at Haw Ridge Park in Oak Ridge from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. This year’s walk will also serve as the Arboretum Society’s monthly Third Saturday Hike.
Kris Light, an expert naturalist, educator and photographer will lead this fun, educational and easy walk. The group will meet at the kiosk by the Soccer Trail in the parking lot off Edgemoor Road at Haw Ridge. Participants may want to bring a camera to take pictures of the wildflowers. Wear clothes appropriate to the weather and boots or good shoes for outdoor walking. Be sure to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated as you hike. No pets please!
Describing the walk, Light said, “Most people think of springtime as wildflower season, but late summer and fall color the fields and roadsides in gold, purple and white. Come to the fall wildflower walk to learn more about the wildflowers of the fields. “
This is a free program offered by the University of Tennessee Arboretum Society. No registration is required. To learn more about this hike or the UT Arboretum Society, go to www.utarboretumsociety.org. For more information on the program, call 865-483-7277.

The City of Oak Ridge Stormwater Division and its Healthy Waters Program will host a volunteer cleanup event called “Clean the Clinch” along a portion of the Clinch River on Saturday, September 21, 2019, from 9 a.m. until noon.
The cleanup efforts will take place near Edgemoor Road and Haw Ridge Park. Trash has gathered in the water and along the banks in that area which sees high foot traffic and many wildlife sightings. Participants will begin the cleanup operation at the boat ramp located at 173 Edgemoor Road in Oak Ridge.
Volunteers are needed to make this event possible. The Oak Ridge Fire Department has offered to bring and operate boats that volunteers can ride in to collect trash. Volunteers are also encouraged to bring their own canoe or kayak if possible.
Additionally, volunteers will be needed on the shore to pick up litter, sort recycling, and remove invasive plant species along the shoreline. There will be opportunities for everyone to be a part of this cleanup effort.
Anyone interested in volunteering is asked to visit the City of Oak Ridge Facebook page for more information on registering for this event. Volunteers can also register by emailing the Healthy Waters Program at email@example.com or by calling at (865) 425-1890. Questions about the event can also be submitted by email or phone.
