TN Naturalist Program holds sixth workshop at Ijams

Under the shade of a sycamore, Jen Roder talks trees


The Tennessee Naturalist Program at Ijams is an ongoing series that introduces participants to the wonder of the state’s amazing natural resources. A total of 16 sessions, each either two, three or four hours long, will be held during 2013. 

Last Saturday was class number 6: "Tennessee Trees and Forest" taught by Jennifer Roder. By the end of the year the attendees will be Certified Tennessee Naturalists. This year's classes are all full, but we are already taking enrollment for 2014 classes. Call Jen at (865) 577-4717, ext. 130 to learn more or sign up.
