Earth Day in Huntsville - Bob
We celebrated Earth Day at Hays Preserve in Huntsville, Alabama on Saturday,
April 20. Hays Preserve is located along the Flint River and since the
river went over its banks, the City had to relocate to higher ground!!!
There was a very heavy turnout of 2,000 or so regardless of this situation.
There were about 60 or so organizations represented. Sandra Parker and I
used a newly constructed TTA display and manned the table from 10 AM-2 PM.
There were a lot of folks that stopped by to talk about hiking. Many of
them recognized places on the display board. I offered to send them a paper
that I wrote on Hiking in the Huntsville Area which includes all of the
organizations, including TTA, and places to hike. IN order to get the
paper they had to provide us with their name and E-mail address. We were
able to get 48 sign-ups. I will send them the paper I promised along with
further info on the TTA.
A good time was had by all.
