Join veteran forester and park volunteer Ed Lewis on Saturday, April 8 for an informative program and tour of the park to learn the fascinating history and uses of common trees. You will learn why the USS Constitution was nicknamed “Old Ironsides”, why certain caterpillars love black cherry leaves, which two species of trees helped make a Tennessee distiller famous, and lots more! Ed is well known throughout the state for his interesting programs and enthusiasm when sharing his love of trees with others. This fun and fact-filled program begins at 9:30 a.m. and pre-registration is required. To reserve your spot, please call the park office at 334-794-3452.
