The TRWA is in excellent shape thanks to our maintenance team from the Tuckaleechee Garden Club, so it is time for you to take a stroll thru the Townsend River Walk & Arboretum.
Our maintenance team did a great job of cleaning up around the entrance to the TRWA, the Pollinator & Memorial Garden, collecting trash throughout, destroying the invasive Mimosa trees and putting a nice layer of mulch around the Dogwood Tribe along the top path. A big thanks goes to Tuckaleechee Garden Club Members: Theresa and Scott Schehr, Martha Frink, Charlotte Miller and Mark Seder for taking the time and effort to maintaining the TRWA.
There are many mid-Summer flowers in bloom throughout the TRWA, the Pollinator & Memorial Garden is beginning to fill in, and the lower path provides comfort from the East TN Summer sun. The hillside opposite the Pollinator & Memorial Garden is thick with Wingstem, Ironweed, many varieties of Coreopsis and more, all just coming into bloom.
Stop by today and if you like what you see, a donation would be appreciated so that we can continue improving the TRWA for generations to come!

Our Dogwood Tribe was given a nice 4 inch layer of mulch just before the rain. Timing is everything!

Looking at the Pollinator & Memorial Garden thru an Iron Weed. What a terrible name for such a beautiful plant.
The Monarch Butterfly part of the Pollinator and Memorial Garden has really grown over the last couple of months.

This is the first White Wingstem that we have seen along the top path of the Townsend River Walk & Arboretum.

We have an abundant amount of Smallanthus uvedalius aka: Bears Foot or Hairy Leafcup and it is just coming into bloom!
