Nature Fest is a four-day celebration of the great outdoors brought to you by the Tennessee Tech Department of Biology, the Cookeville Department of Leisure Services, Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, and the Nature Fest organizing committee.
The event is free and is held at Pennebaker Hall on Tennessee Tech University campus, City Lake Natural Area and Cane Creek Park in Cookeville, among other locations.
Hikes, lectures, workshops, presentations and activities focused on land, water, air, plants and animals will be led by knowledgeable people willing to share their expertise.
Each year Nature Fest has grown larger and larger, and this year will be no exception with new speakers, topics and activities. Special children’s activities will also be offered including hands-on crafts that relate to nature.
