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:
Reading Ranger Story Trail - Unveiling of New Story!
Saturday, June 24 at 11:00am
Long Hunter State Park will unveil the second edition of the Reading Ranger Story Trail on Saturday, June 24. The Story Trail combines outdoor exercise with childhood literacy through storybook artwork along a quarter-mile trail.
Tennessee State Parks has partnered with the Governor's Books from Birth Foundation and the Nashville Public Library to bring visitors the children’s storybook "Pitter and Patter" by Martha Sullivan. Engaging artwork by Cathy Morrison reveals the journey of two raindrops traveling through the water cycle and greeting animal friends along the way. The story introduces young minds to this vital environmental concept as they walk along a state park trail.
Located near Couchville Lake, the Story Trail will be accessible daily during regular park hours, 7 a.m.-sunset, until Spring 2018.
Location: Area 2, near Couchville Lake
