Trails & Trilliums

Every year as the earth’s axis begins to tilt toward the sun, temperatures rise and days grow longer. Eventually the daytime hours equal the nighttime hours, marking the spring equinox and the end of winter. Here in the northern hemisphere, that first day of spring happens around the third week of March. It is a time of rebirth and renewal, celebrated around the world. In Tennessee there are many spring celebrations to be found, including one that has become a favorite of outdoor lovers across the southeast. Trails & Trilliums is a three day festival hosted by the Monteagle Sunday School Assembly that is filled with fun outdoor activities for the whole family. And as Wild Side Guide Ken Tucker found out, it’s also a great opportunity to help preserve one of the most biologically diverse parts of our Tennessee while exploring the spectacular natural beauty of South Cumberland, our largest wilderness state park.

Trails and Trilliums is a major fundraiser for the Friends of South Cumberland, one of Tennessee’s leading land preservation and conservation groups.

To learn more about this year’s festival (April 10, 11, 12), visit the Trails & Trilliums website, trailsandtrilliums.org. There is a ten dollar general admission fee, but kids and accompanying adults get in free. This year all the money raised goes to support the Friends of South Cumberland’s “Every Child in the Park” initiative, designed to connect kids and their families with nature, through a variety of outreach programs.
