Earlier this month, the TVA Retirees Association (TVARA) announced their continued support of the Legacy Parks Foundation and the City of Knoxville for the purchase and assembly of 30 trail benches for six existing parks in the area. TVARA will contribute $10,000 to Collier Preserve in Powell and an additional $30,000 over the next three years to fund benches in multiple county parks.

Current TVA employees have been invited to partner with TVARA retirees to assemble trail benches funded by TVARA, clear trails, remove invasive undergrowth, and identify native plants in the area at a scheduled work day  at Collier Preserve on November 30th.
