The Cherokee Group of the Sierra Club will be hosting a picnic and slide show on Monday, July 28 at Outdoor Chattanooga. The public is invited to join Sierra in learning about the Wilderness Areas of our National Forests, with an emphasis on the Big Frog/Cohutta Wilderness, the largest protected area in the eastern United States. The presentation is part of Sierra’s celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act that continues throughout the year.
The picnic begins at 6 p.
m. with dishes and drink available inside the Outdoor Chattanooga building. From there, the event will move outside for relaxing in Coolidge Park. At 7 p.m., attendees will return indoors for the Wilderness slide show by Sierra member Davis Mounger, featuring a mix of slides and video.
Everyone is encouraged to bring blankets or chairs. Sierra will supply plates, cups, and utensils. Please let them know if you plan to bring a dish by contacting Sheryl Campbell at 423-693-4729 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
