Join Foothills Land Conservancy’s Land Director, Meredith Clebsch, as she highlights conservation practices you can incorporate in your own backyard - such as proper land stewardship, planting native and planting for wildlife. Foothills now has over 90 land protection partnerships with over 30 of them located in Blount County! Each one has their own unique story and environmental attributes. We will plan on visiting one of these preserved and quintessential East TN properties.  Please note – space is limited to 25 so please contact Elise at FLC’s office at 681-8326 for registration. We will meet in the parking lot of Foothills Land Conservancy’s office at 5:30PM (373 Ellis Avenue, Maryville – across from the Farm Bureau) You may wish to carpool with friends or you can follow the Foothills staff in your own car. Please bring water, comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk a mile or so as we tour the property.   In case of inclement weather, the presentation will be held indoors at 6:30PM inside the Wellness Center.
