Seniors Outdoors is a half-day event on May 16th that will introduce adults over the age of 50 to the Urban Wilderness and all it has to offer. This event is free, but registration is required. The event includes guided strolls and hikes, exhibits and programs, kayak and mountain bike demonstrations, lunch, special guest speaker Dr. Bob Overholt, and a warm welcome from Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero.
A bus will be provided and will leave from the John T. O’Connor Senior Center (611 Winona Street) promptly at 9:30 am to go to Mead’s Quarry and will return to the O’Connor Center at 1:30 pm. Participants are encouraged to wear sturdy shoes, bring a water bottle, sunscreen, and a camp chair if needed.
