Walker Branch State Natural Area
Walker Branch is a 225 acre State Natural Area located 3 miles south of Savannah, Tennessee. This wetland area off the Tennessee River provides a lush breeding ground for many insects. Over 40 different species of dragonflies and damselflies have been identified here. Steep hills (rising over 250 feet), created creeks, marshes, and swamp forests offering a pristine example of an undisturbed bald cypress forest. Many rare and endangered plant species are also found here.
