Join us for a

Tree Spree!

All are invited to celebrate with us at this free event! Preparations are underway - educational tables and tree-related activities for the whole family. We will also announce the winners of our 2019 Big Old Tree Contest and reveal the identity of our Victor Johnson Award recipient!

This is a special opportunity to visit The Land Trust for Tennessee’s Glen Leven Farm, which is not regularly open to the public.

Sunday, October 6 from 3 - 5 PM
