UT Arboretum Society offers monthly hike on St. Patrick’s Day

Grab your shillelagh and come walk at the Arboretum

 

The UT Arboretum Society’s monthly hike for March will be held March 17th at the UT Arboretum, 9:00 a.m.  Before the celebrations begin, come and enjoy some fresh air and exercise on this St. Patrick’s Day hike.

 

The weather is starting to get warmer and this is a great time to spend outdoors. Learn about the UT Arboretum’s trails on this short trail hike (1 to 1.5 hours). Don’t worry if you don’t have a shillelagh (Irish walking stick) as it is an easy hike.

 

This hike will be held outdoors and will be led by a volunteer familiar with the Arboretum and the trail system. Come to the UT Arboretum, 901 S. Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge at 9:00 a.m. 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.
