New BT Bandanas!

April 17th, 2011 by NC BTS

At the top of every hiker and backpacker’s packing list are bandanas: Lightweight, multipurpose, indispensable. Now hikers can proudly support the efforts of the NC Bartram Trail Society by helping promote the trail with this new NCBT bandana design. It’s not likely to be featured on the runways of NY or Paris spring fashion shows – which is all the more reason to buy it here. Consider ordering some for hiking friends. Wouldn’t you LOVE to open an envelope in your mailbox and find a bandana gift from a dear friend? Add them to your spring Easter outfit for the woods! Then post a photo to our NCBT Facebook page of your most creative use of a bandana. Wearing/using the BT bandana is almost guaranteed to win friends and influence people!

The series began with the 50th anniversary of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Video segments are aired nightly on WBIR-TV’s NBC affiliate in Knoxville, Tennessee. They are also made available for sale to the public in DVD format. The very first Heartland Series segment was called “An Unlikely Explorer” and was about the travels of William Bartram. To celebrate the Park’s 75th anniversary, Landry and his film crew returned to the Nantahala National Forest in December 07 and July 08 and filmed another segment on the NCBT. The new segment aired in July.
