The University of Tennessee Arboretum Society will offer a Father-Daughter Hike at the UT Arboretum in Oak Ridge on Saturday, February 18. It’s the eighth year of the popular program, a press release said.
It’s a fun, short trail hike of about one to 1.5 hours, the press release said.
“This is a great winter occasion to spend some quality time outdoors with your daughter or dad,” the press release said.
The hike will be led by Jeff Holt, a local forester.
The UT Arboretum is at 901 South Illinois Avenue. There will be refreshments before the hike at 9 a.m. February 18.
