Williamson County Parks and Recreation is proud to host ongoing nature programs and events at Timberland Park in Franklin.
May 3: Ten Essentials of Survival – 4:30 p.m. Whether going out for a short hike or a longer expedition, there are some things that everyone should bring with them. Join park staff to learn about what those things are and how to be prepared for any hiking situation. Register for activity #14259, at www.wcparksandrec.com
Mammal Pelts of Tennessee – 1:00 p.m. Have you ever wanted to feel how soft an otter’s fur is? Or perhaps you want to pet a coyote. This is your chance to do so safely! Join us at the park to learn about some of Tennessee’s native mammals and also get a chance to feel their pelts. The event is free, but registration is required. Register for activity #14310 at www.wcparksandrec.com.
Full Moon Hike – 8:00 p.m. Come out and see the park as it is rarely seen…at night! We will hike around a mile and discuss different night-time creatures and try to dispel some of our fears of the night. As an added bonus, we will have a full moon to hike by. This is truly going to be a fantastic time. Join us! Pre-registration is strictly required. Register for activity #14312 at www.wcparksandrec.com.
May 24: Tree Ring Fun – 4:00 p.m. Come out to the park to learn about the lives of trees and what we can tell from their rings. Register for activity #14313 at www.wcparksandrec.com.
