The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area announces a 45-minute ranger-led interpretive program at Blue Heron Campground about the wild hog. Come learn how this domesticated free-roaming animal of centuries past got here, some bits of history about Charit Creek Lodge (formerly known as "the hog farm"), and how it has become a destructive pest that is wreaking havoc on the environment today. Ranger Alan Bowlin will present this evening activity on Saturday, July 27, at 7:30 p.m.
This campfire circle program is free of charge and wheelchair accessible. Seating is limited on a first-come, first–served basis. Please wear weather-appropriate clothing for this outdoor event. Everyone is welcome.
For directions or additional information, please call the Blue Heron Interpretive Center at (606) 376-3787.
