Saturday, June 3: North Ridge Trail Focus of 2017 National Trails Day

North Ridge Trail Stewards announce a celebration/workday effort scheduled for Saturday, June 3.  That day is National Trails Day, which was established by the American Hiking Society.

The North Ridge Trail was built many years ago by Tennessee Citizens for Wilderness Planning, and is currently stewarded by Ray and Jo Ann Garrett.

The event, which is open to the public, will feature an invasive plant removal session on North Ridge Trail accesses.  Participants are asked to meet at the Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge at 9 a.m.  and to wear sturdy shoes and bring bug spray, sunscreen, water, and a hoe, mattock, or lopper if available.

A pizza lunch will be provided around noon.  For more information about this event call Sandra K. Goss, TCWP Executive Director, at 865.583-3967 or write
