On this evening stroll, we'll visit a Cherokee Mound that was almost destroyed to build a road shortcut. Plants important to the Cherokee grow on and around the mound. After the mound, we'll look for female ginkgo trees and visit a mural about the reproductive strategies (including deceit and hitchhiking) of Tennessee river mussels. Then we'll swing along Third Creek to Neyland Drive, look for turtles and herons, and explore the ever-changing plantings of UT Gardens. Bring a kid's book to add to the Little Free Library (not required). Meet at Parking for UT Gardens (behind the UT Veterinary Hospital) 2518 Jacob Drive, at 5:00pm. Bring water and snack. Hike: about 2.5 miles, rated easy.
