For the beauty of the earth

This Sunday, April 26, we're offering two free guided nature hikes in the beautiful Old Forest of Overton Park.

The first hike will begin at our usual time of 10:00am, for all you Emily Dickinson fans.

The second hike will begin at 2:00pm and will be guided by botanist Tom Heineke, who was hired nine months ago by Memphis Park Services to conduct a year-long plant survey of our forest.

Both hikes meet on the Lick Creek bridge at the east end of Old Forest Lane, next to the Rainbow Lake parking lot. We cover a leisurely 1.5 miles on dirt trails. Kids are always welcome. Email if you need more info.
