In observance of National Bicycle Month, Shiloh Battlefield will host a wildflower bicycle tour.
This interpretive program will consist of an eight-mile biking tour across the historic battlefield, with selected stops and brief walks to the wide variety of flowering trees and plants that bloom in May.
This unique program will acquaint visitors with Shiloh’s natural resources, and the bicyclists will have the opportunity to view the abundant diversity of plants and animals which inhabit Shiloh battlefield and the southeastern forest. The bicycle tour will be held Monday at 5:30 p.m. The tour will last about 90 minutes.
Those interested in participating are invited to contact the Shiloh Battlefield Visitor Center at (731) 689-5696, or email Ranger Marcus Johnson at Marcus_Johnson@nps.gov.
Participants will be required to bring their own bicycles for this activity. Rain will cancel the bicycle tour.
