On Saturday, April 27th, Keep Athens-Limestone Beautiful will celebrate Earth Day by inviting the community to a day of fun and learning. This day of activities offers something for everyone no matter what age, so bring the family and adult friends, too! Guided Nature Walk The day will begin with a Marbut Bend Trail Nature Walk lead by Mr. Damien Simbeck with TVA Natural Resource Management. The trail is...
... located on Hwy. 99 in West Limestone. Damien is a birding expert who is also very knowledgeable about the history of the trail and the myriad of wildlife that call the area home. Come and enjoy a peaceful morning with Damien and learn more about our natural world.
Participants will meet at the trail head at 8:00 a.m. It is suggested that walkers wear comfortable shoes, bring binoculars if available, and use sunscreen and/or insect repellent if needed.
