Join us in honoring the 2019 Stanley A. Murray Volunteers of the Year.

In 1989 the Stanley A. Murray Award for Volunteer Service was created to honor persons who have made outstanding volunteer contributions to the work of SAHC emulating the lifelong dedication of our founder, Stanley A. Murray.

This year, we honor the Tennessee Eastman Hiking and Canoeing Club for its extraordinary volunteer help to SAHC in 2018 managing Golden-winged Warbler habitat around our Grassy Ridge “Birdhouse” property. TEHCC members made numerous trips to the Grassy Ridge property to open up 2.5 acres of new habitat for Golden-winged warblers. They donated fuel, equipment, and more than 383 hours cutting locusts on the property, then spent another 403 hours de-barking and transporting the locust to be used in repairing sections of the Appalachian Trail across the Roan Highlands. In addition, several members of the club participated in trail planning and building on our Elk Hollow preserve.

Tickets:

$35 member, $40 non-member, $50 at the door. $25 Student/AmeriCorps
