The UT Arboretum Society’s third Saturday hike for April will be held April 20 at the UT Arboretum. The weather is starting to get warmer and this is a great time to spend outdoors. Learn about the UT Arboretum’s trails on this short trail hike (1 to 1.5 hours). Our April hike is one of the official hikes of the 2019 Covenant Health Dogwood Arts Patch Program www.covenanthealth.com/dogwoodpatch . On the April hike we will choose a route to highlight our dogwood collections and any spring ephemerals that may still be in bloom.
Meet at the UT Arboretum Visitors Center, 901 S. Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge at 9:00 a.m. Please wear clothes appropriate to the weather and boots or good shoes for outdoor walking. Hikes will be varied in intensity level, and the route may be changed due to weather conditions or leader’s choice. These hikes are designed to be suitable for all, but the difficulty level of the hike is dependent on individual fitness. Be sure to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated at you hike. This hike will be led by a volunteer familiar with the UT Arboretum and the trail system.
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 483-7277.
