March 22nd, 2011 from 6:30pm-7:00pm - Join Foothills Land Conservancy as we 'Spring into the Outdoors' next Tuesday at the Blount Memorial Wellness Center (220 Associates Blvd. - Alcoa, TN). Ever get frustrated trying to identify things with guide books? Us too! In this presentation, we'll explore the basics of what key features you should notice on plants and on birds, before you whip out the guide books, to help you successfully identify your mystery subject. We will talk about some of the common spring plants and spring migrant birds in East TN that you might be wondering about this time of year. Presenters are Meredith Clebsch, FLC’s Land Director and Dr. Ed Clebsch, FLC Board Member. Meredith owned Native Gardens, a native plant nursery in Greenback, TN, for 26 years and Ed is retired Botanist and Ecologist from UT. This presentation is free and open to the public.
