Great Woods

This morning, I tagged along on a very special, very private, Team Green outing to hike through the Hill Tract — a pristine old growth forest in southwest Davidson county. The tract recently became available to the Friends of Warner Parks, for purchase. So far, they've raised about 90% of the necessary funds and have an agreement in place to make the buy, with the intention of turning around and donating it to Metro. You can get details and make a donation, if you like, here.

Hopefully they'll be able to hit their goal before closing; it would be a shame for Nashville hikers to lose this opportunity.
