Volunteers hard at work conducting trail maintenance
Obed Wild & Scenic River will celebrate National Public Lands Day by teaming up with the East Tennessee Climbers Coalition (ETCC) to host the 19th annual Adopt-a-Crag event at the park on Saturday, September 08. Volunteers are needed to help with several projects, such as general trail maintenance and park beautification.

Please meet at Lilly Pad Campground 920 Ridge Road Lancing, Tennessee at 9:00 AM (ET) to register and receive a project assignment.

All volunteers must complete a volunteer application. Volunteers are encouraged to complete a
volunteer application online prior to their arrival.

Due to limited parking, carpooling is suggested. Once on Ridge Road, follow signs to the parking area for the event located off of Doc Howard Road. Please bring your own lunch and water. Volunteers are also encouraged to bring hand tools, shovels, gloves, and insect repellant. If any volunteers would like to assist with the treatment of the hemlock wooly adelgid, please wear long-sleeve shirts, long pants, and closed-toed shoes.

After completing the park projects, volunteers are invited to spend the day climbing their favorite routes or enjoying other recreational opportunities in the park. The ETCC will be a hosting a dinner, games and announcements at Lilly Pad Campground at 6:30 PM (ET).
