Sewanee Herbarium Summer Events


The Sewanee herbarium will host a botanical drawing on Saturday, July 22, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., led by Mary Priestley.
Participants will work on a careful drawing of a single botanical specimen, such as a herbaceous plant, a leafy twig or a single flower or fruit. Emphasis will be on quality time with a member of the botanical world and really seeing the subject. The event will include a few botanical terms meant to enhance appreciation and understanding of the subject being drawn. Paper and pencils will be supplied, but participants can bring other materials. Meet at the Herbarium office, room 169 in Spencer Hall on the Sewanee campus.
The Herbarium will host a Foster Falls walk on Saturday, July 29, at 9 a.m., led by Mary Priestley. Meet at the Foster Falls parking area for this one- to two-hour easy walk in the power line right-of-way above the gorge with optional short but steep trek to the bottom of the falls and back.
