Last year on a beautiful October day, Tennessee Wild's Jeff Hunter led eleven hikers on a walk along the Brookshire Creek Trail in the Cherokee National Forest. This trail is about 20 miles east of the quaint little town of Tellico Plains. While we often lead hikes along this rail, on this day, a producer and cameraman from This American Land joined us for the hike.
This American Land is a new 30-minute PBS show just starting its second season. The six and a half minute segment that resulted from this outing is entitled 'Tennessee Wilderness,' and is included in episode 201. The show has already aired in Wisconsin, North Carolina, Indiana, California & Kentucky, and will soon air in New Hampshire and other states. While the show is not yet scheduled to air in Tennessee, we expect that it may later this year. Once we have air dates we will post them here on the Tennessee Wild website and on our Facebook page. You can check the This American Land website for airtimes by date or your local listings. The entire 30-minute show is worth watching. It features segments on Manatees and the Colorado River along with our segment on the Cherokee National Forest. In the meantime, here's the segment on Tennessee Wilderness for your viewing pleasure!
