Dads and daughters: why not plan some quality time together this winter and do it outdoors?  Come out to the University of Tennessee Arboretum for a fun, short trail hike (1 to 1.5 hours) on Saturday, February 18. This is a great winter occasion to spend some quality time outdoors with your daughter or dad.


This hike will be held outdoors and will be led by Jeff Holt, a local forester. Come to the UT Arboretum, 901 S. Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge at 9:00 a.m. for refreshments before the hike. Wear clothes appropriate to the weather and boots or good shoes for outdoor walking.


This is a free program offered by the University of Tennessee Arboretum Society.
