FURTHER INFORMATION:
Come out and enjoy springtime in the beautiful Sequatchie
Valley. We are only an hour from Chattanooga by car, but an
infinite distance in peace and quiet with the opportunity to
enjoy
the natural world, hike on trails in a pristine forest, and
experience our sustainable lifestyle. Plan to visit Como Se
Llama
Gallery at SVI to shop for exquisite handmade art and crafts
produced by our staff. Specially selected books and CD’s
are
also available. All sales benefit our non-profit
programming.
For more information call (423) 949-5922 or go to

LONGER VERSION:
Come and join the Sequatchie Valley Institute staff and
friends
and the ragwort, dwarf buckeye, phlox, bloodroot, trout
lily,
trilliums, wild geranium, dogwoods, redbuds, and more in the
beautiful Sequatchie Valley for two spring wildflower hikes,
on
Saturday, March 31, and April 14. Expert naturalists will
accompany both hikes. We will begin hiking at 11 am Central
time. There will be a choice of a long, strenuous hike deep
into
the Gulf, or a shorter, more relaxed walk. Plan to take
lots of
picture! 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. If you wish, you may bring a picnic lunch
to eat
at one of our beautiful picnic areas in the woods. A
tractor-
pulled hayride will be available. A donation of $5 will be
used
for our non-profit educational programs. For directions to
