February 2019 Meeting: Conserving and Restoring Native Habitats on Private Lands

Monday, February 25th, 2019
to (Central Time)

Cynthia Rohrbach, Project Manager and Biologist with the Swan Conservation Trust, will give a presentation on "Conserving and Restoring Native Habitats on Private Lands: Hardwood Forests, Remnant Grasslands, and Wetlands."

Swan Conservation Trust

Swan Conservation Trust was founded as a 501c3 land trust in 1992 when there were only a handful of land trusts in Tennessee. The original conservation focus has been in the headwaters of Big Swan and Big Bigby Creeks in Lewis County, although their mission extends to the Western Highland Rim. With a history of being an all-volunteer organization, Swan Trust has nevertheless had great success in fundraising to purchase and conserve large tracts of deciduous forest; obtaining state and federal grants to convert bottomland hayfields to native warm season grasses; partnering with private landowners to cooperatively restore and manage a remnant prairie; and obtaining TDOT mitigation funds to preserve and enhance wetlands on Big Swan Headwaters Preserve. Educating the public through outings to their own Preserves as well as numerous natural areas in Middle Tennessee is now being expanded to include water quality studies, birding, and botanizing with children.  Cynthia Rohrbach, one of the original founders, will show and tell about Swan Trust.

Belle Forest Cave Property Hike

Sunday, March 17th, 2019
to (Central Time)

Since the parking lot at the hike site is small, we will meet at 1:30 pm in the parking lot of Five Guys in Bellevue (Belle Forest Shopping Center, 7026 Hwy 70 S, Nashville, TN 37221) and carpool from there.  This shopping center at the northeast corner of the intersection of Highway 70 S and Old Hickory Blvd directly across the street from a Kroger.

The name for this hike really should be serviceberry hike because we selected a date when the serviceberry (Amelanchier arborea) is likely to be in bloom.

Located near the heavily developed Neighborhood of Bellevue, the Belle Forest Cave Property is a quiet untouched realm covered by a large diversity of trees in a small area. Its name is derived from a small cave with a small ‘cool house’ by the last farmer in the valley in the mid-19thcentury, to store milk and meat during the hot summers.  Three streams, one flowing from the cave, converge to a tributary of the Harpeth River watershed. These clean streams provide the basis for a rich lowland hardwood forest with a large number of huge trees. The cave is located on the base of a central incline that ascends dramatically up to a ridge, which extends for a mile towards the West Meade area. This ridge constitutes a remnant of the Highland Rim and as such, is geologically different from the limestone strata below. The difference between the alkaline soil and the streams in the valley and the dry, acid soil on top gives rise to a large diversity of trees.

As one ascends a small path up the hill from the cave we find Mockernut Hickory (C. tomentosa), Pignut Hickory (Cglabra), several Red Oak species and large examples of Chestnut Oaks (Quercus montana). An open area, just above the cave is covered with old Farkleberry bushes (Vaccinium arboreum), and surrounded by Black Gum (Nyssa sylvatica), Post Oak (Quercus stellata) and Sourwood (Oxydendrum arboreum). In early Spring we find several smaller Serviceberry trees (Amelanchier arborea) scattered along the slopes. Native azaleas (Rhododendron canescensand R. alabamense) are another treasure on this hill. They are found only on this hilltop and then scattered 1-2 miles away towards some hillsides in West Meade. None of them can be found in the Warner parks, to our knowledge.

Description: This is a joint hike with the Tennessee Native Plant Society and our Wild Ones Middle Tennessee Chapter. Shakerag Hollow ranks as one of the top locations for early spring ephemerals in Middle TN. It contains a beautiful mature forest located within the Domain of the University of the South. Numerous scenic features include tall rock faces, caves, waterfalls, and mountain streams. The trail has a continuous display of wildflowers. Among the many plants we should see include Trillium grandiflorum and T. sulcatum, trout lilies, ramps, Dutchman’s breeches, celandine poppy, dwarf larkspur, purple phacelia, and early saxifrage. The sandstone escarpment often has halberd-leaf violet (V. hastate) and Sweet White violet (V. blanda), shrub yellowroot, and shining club moss. Midway through the hike, if we’re lucky, we may find the showy spotted mandarin (Prosartes maculate) with its creamy-white flowers dotted with maroon specks.

Directions: Leave I-24 at exit 134 in Monteagle. Take US 41-A toward Sewanee. Continue 3.7 miles to the University gates. The parking area is on the right just past the St. Andrews school entrance. (35.210034, - 85.898113).

You have to register for the hike by clicking the SignUp button below and completing the requested information.

As the first property acquired by the Tennessee Chapter of the Nature Conservancy, Taylor Hollow State Natural Area protects a high-quality cove where visitors can experience how Middle Tennessee’s pre-settlement spring flora may have appeared. Attendees of this excursion will review the names of different wildflowers, observe the state-endangered blue-eyed Mary, learn how to distinguish between different species, and discuss the environmental variables that influence forest species composition. The hike consists of about two miles at a slow to moderate pace and those accustomed to hiking should have little difficulty. The hike will last from two to three hours with stops to enjoy, photograph, and learn about wildflowers. The route crosses one shallow stream, so wear suitable footwear. Dress appropriately for the weather and bring water and snacks.

Description: This is a joint hike with the Tennessee Native Plant Society and our Wild Ones Middle Tennessee Chapter.

As a result Coffee County is one of only three counties in Tennessee with 50 or more rare plant species. We will visit the AEDC first to see native orchids: Calopogon tuberosus, Cleistes bifaria (now Cleistesiopsis), and possibly Platanthera lacera and Pogonia ophioglossoides. We should also find Death Camas (Zigadenus leimanthoides, now Stenanthium tennesseense), Whorled Loosestrife (Lysimachia quadrifolia), and Hyssop Leaved Skullcap (Scutellaria integrifolia). After lunch time permitting we will visit May Prairie. We should see Mock Bishop’s Weed (Ptilimnium costatum), Enyngo (Eryngium integrifolium), Coppery St. Johnswort (Hypericum denticulatum), Marsh Pea (Lathyrus palustris), Horned Bladderpod (Utricularia cornuta), and Swamp Candles (Lysimachia terrestris).

Directions: Leave I-24 at exit 114 in Manchester TN. Turn left coming from Chattanooga (right from Nashville) onto US 41 heading NW toward town. Turn right at the 1st traffic light (Raceway at that intersection) beyond the interstate. Wendy’s is half a block on the right.

June 2019 Meeting

Monday, June 24th, 2019
to (Central Time)

Cooper Breeden, Coordinator of the Tennessee Plant Conservation Alliance, will be the presenter.

The Tennessee Plant Conservation Alliance: Preventing the local extinction of
rare plants through collaborative partnership

The Tennessee Plant Conservation Alliance (TPCA) is a collaborative network that connects state and federal agencies, university researchers, botanical gardens, nurseries, nonprofits, volunteers, and more to facilitate the conservation of rare plants and communities across the state. With over 500 rare plants in Tennessee, such a coalition of organizations and individuals dedicated to the conservation of Tennessee’s rare plants is essential. This is a new effort in Tennessee, but it is modeled after programs in other regions of the country that have experienced decades of success. In its inaugural planning meeting this winter, the TPCA met to discuss conservation priorities and worked together to establish an initial list of priority projects. This presentation will go over several of those projects and what we're doing to get them off the ground this year.

September 2019 Meeting

Monday, September 23rd, 2019

We offer suggestions for native plants that are thriving in a suburban yard and have not drawn negative attention from neighbors or the HOA; provide images of some of the wildlife attracted to these plants; and show what invasive plants to avoid/remove. Before our home was constructed five years ago the area was cattle pasture; by our second year on the property we were NWF certified.
