Interpretive Programs This Weekend at The Big South Fork

Summer is here and nature is calling...erm not that kind of calling. Nature beckons us to get outside and enjoy all there is to offer. What better way to do so than by going to a state or national park for picnics, hikes, camping, etc? If you are planning on hitting your parks this weekend, the summer time always offers plenty of activities for the whole family. Most parks have seasonal interpretive rangers on staff and that means a full list of daily interpretive programs.So be sure to stop in at your park's visitor center to find out more information on these great programs.

This weekend and through the month of June at the Big South Fork is no exception. They have a full list of programs for the whole family. Saturday, June 11, they have a nature hike along the O&W trail down at the Leatherwood Ford area starting at 10:30am. At 2:00pm one of the rangers will have a program on box turtles. Saturday happens to be free fishing day in Tennessee and at 7:00pm join one of the BSF rangers for a fun time fishing. In the Blue Heron area of the park at 7:30 there will be an Owl Prowl. On Sunday the only program on the list is a hike on the Oscar Blevins Trail, this starts at 10:30am.

The Big South Fork has more information on their programs throughout the month of June on their website. Check it out or contact Howard Duncan @ 423-569-9778 for more information.

Happy Trails,
