UT Arboretum Society: Third Saturday Hike**

CANCELLED

The UT Arboretum Society’s monthly hike for March will be held Saturday, March 21, UT Arboretum Visitors Center, 9:00 a.m., 901 S. Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge. The weather is starting to get warmer, and this is a great time to spend outdoors.

In 2020, the UT Arboretum Society is again offering a monthly hike on the third Saturday of each month. This is a free program offered by the University of Tennessee Arboretum Society. No registration is necessary.

Learn about the UT Arboretum’s trails on this short trail hike (1 to 1.5 hours). Hikes will be varied in intensity level, and the route may be changed due to weather conditions or leader’s choice. This hike will be led by a volunteer familiar with the UT Arboretum and the trail system. While looking for signs of spring, this is a great occasion to spend some quality time outdoors and to learn about the UT Arboretum’s trails.

Please wear clothes appropriate to the weather and boots or good shoes for outdoor walking. We aim for this hike to be suitable for all, but the difficulty level of the hike is dependent on individual fitness. Be sure to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated as you hike. No pets, please. Due to ongoing research projects on our grounds, we are unable to allow pets.

Celebrating 55 years in 2020, this program is one of many lectures and activities that will be offered this year by the UT Arboretum Society. The program is cosponsored by the UT Forest Resources AgResearch and Education Center.

The Forest Resources AgResearch and Education Center which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2014, is one of ten outdoor laboratories located throughout the state as part of the UT AgResearch system. AgResearch is a division of the UT Institute of Agriculture. The Institute of Agriculture also provides instruction, research and public service through the UT Herbert College of Agriculture, the UT College of Veterinary Medicine, UT AgResearch and UT Extension offices, with locations in every county in the state.
