A Walk through Abbo’s Alley

  • on 1 Oct 2011
  • Abbo's Alley

The Abbott Martin Ravine Garden is a lovely mix of native and cultivated plants, and the ravine is steeped in Sewanee history. Botany Professor Emeritus George Ramseur has spent countless hours working in the garden and knows it well. Meet on the campus Quadrangle (beside All Saints’ Chapel) for this easy one-hour walk, a Sewanee Family Weekend event but also open to the public.

Wear appropriate shoes on all of these walks. Risks involved in hiking include physical exertion, rough terrain, forces of nature, and other hazards not present in everyday life. Picking flowers and digging plants are prohibited in all of the above-mentioned natural areas.
