The purpose of Friends of Long Hunter State Park is to help protect and improve the park environment for those who use it; and to support the park staff in its preservation and educational efforts.
We encourage you to join us in our efforts to assist Long Hunter State Park by becoming a member of our organization.
We offer many events throughout the year. We also have a Full Event Calendar. The following is a short list of upcoming events:
Movie Night in the Park
Friday, June 24 at 7:00pm
Come and join us for a family-friendly movie at the park. Please bring blankets and comfy chairs to the shelter house -- and snacks if you wish -- as we enjoy the movie and the night air. Fees are $2 an individual and $3 for a family. Meet at Couchville Area 2.
Storybook Trail Celebration
Saturday, June 25 at 11:00am
In partnership with the Wilson County Library’s Mt. Juliet branch, we proudly debut this innovative program that combines the fun outdoor exercise and a children’s book. Come walk out to the former Nature Loop Trail and read the story of 10 baby animals and their parents. Children will delight in the engaging artwork and large pages -- and as they learn the ways of the forest animals, hop, run and jump along this ¼-mile trail. 11 AM - 2 PM. Meet at Couchville Area 2.
Bryant Grove Hike
Sunday, June 26 at 10:00am
Join us at a hike along the Bryant Grove trail to see a variety of plants and animals, from cedar glade wildflowers to waterfowl along J. Percy Priest Lake. Please bring water and wear shoes for hiking. Meet at the Bryant Grove Recreation Area Trailhead.
A lot of support we receive comes from not only members within the Friends group, but also sponsors of local businesses throughout the community who have a love for Long Hunter State Park. If you are interested in sponsoring us, please visit our sponsor page.
