GENERAL PUBLIC AND MASTER GARDENERS: Come visit The Land Trust for Tennessee’s Glen Leven Farm in April to learn all about birds!

10 minutes south of downtown Nashville, you’ll find The Land Trust for Tennessee’s Glen Leven Farm. This year, you’re invited to explore the historic urban farm’s 64 acres on the second Saturday of each month.

From the nature trail to the honeybee sanctuary, there’s always something new to see. Use the field guide to take a self-guided hike or check out the new family-friendly activity each month to learn more about Nashville’s unique landscape and history. Young explorers can take a StoryWalk through the arboretum and around the historic home as a tale unfolds page by page in a children's book. And don’t forget to say hi to the miniature donkeys!

We look forward to having you on the Farm!

There will be a guided bird hike at 8am. To participate, please select the Guided Hike add-on during your registration - register HERE
