Our annual Stewartia Hike with Jack Johnston was moved to Saturday this year to accommodate requests from those who work during the week. Join us to learn more about this rare tree at the height of it’s blooming season. Hikers will meet at the Queen Branch property and car pool to various locations. Sturdy shoes that can get wet, water and a sack lunch are all recommended. Youth who are interested are welcome.
Join Jack Johnston on a bird walk around Mainspring’s Tessentee Bottomlands. Please wear long pants and sturdy shoes. Bring water and a camera.
High school boys and girls will compete at the first ever trail run, sponsored by Franklin High School, on Mainspring’s conserved Tessentee Bottomland property. The event is free. Girls’ race begins at 4:30; boys’ race will start around 5:00 (depending on when female competitors finish).
