Fundraising Event at Lazy Hiker Brewing

  • Lazy Hiker Brewing Franklin, North Carolina (map)

Dear friends of the Bartram Trail,
In late May of 1775, the great naturalist William Bartram visited the Little Tennessee Valley, describing its amazing flora, fauna, and native Cherokee inhabitants, later documenting it in his 1791 publication, Travels

A little over 200 years later, a group of committed citizens made a 100 mile trail from North Georgia to Cheoah Bald in his honor.   On Thursday, May 24th, we will be honoring Bartram's 223 year old arrival with a special evening at Lazy Hiker Brewing in Franklin, NC.  A special beer is being brewed for the event, and we will have raffles, door prizes, brief presentations, and more.  The event runs from 6-8PM and is free and open to the public. No RSVP required.

Come out and support the NC Bartram Trail Society, and one of the most beautiful trails in western North Carolina! 

Thank you for your support,
Brent Martin and the NCBTS Board of Directors
