Sometimes it's hard to find fun things to do! By the time you have searched and planned an outing you are too tired to go through with it! Never fear, Great Life RE is here! We have a list of things to: do, eat, try, buy, watch, and do with your family.

Do: Morning Nature Hike 

When: Saturday, July 14th, 8am-10am
Where: Seven Islands State Birding Park / 2809 Kelly Lane, Kodak

Seasonal Interpretive Ranger Stephanie Mueller will be guiding a nature hike through Seven Islands State Birding Park to explore the park’s abundant wildlife, including birds, wildflowers, plants, trees and insects. The hike will be an easy to moderate 2-3 mile hike along the trails of the park. 

Ranger Stephanie will discuss some of the park’s recent and ongoing projects, as well as answer any questions that people may have about the park and the history of the park. 

Participants should bring plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, bug spray and closed toe shoes are recommended. The hike will occur rain or shine. Please meet at the Bluebird Barn by main entrance by 8:00 AM. This program is FREE, but please  REGISTER to reserve your spot on the hike. Pre-Register HERE

Try: Kitten Yoga Finale

Where: Young Williams Animal Center / 3210 Division St. Knoxville 

Don't miss the final session of our Summer Kitten Yoga series for this year! An instructor from Unity Yoga will be leading the class right at the shelter! 

Yoga is great for the mind and body and kittens are great for the soul, so they are combining the two for a good cause! Tickets are $20 and 100% goes to helping shelter animals. All kittens in the yoga class are adoptables from YWAC and interested parties can fill out adoption applications!

Space is limited, so reserve your spot in advance! Reserve your spot HERE

Watch and Listen: Seafoam Green LIVE

When: Friday, July 13th, 8pm-10pm
Where: The Station / 4206 Miser Station Rd. Louisville, TN

Seafoam Green rolls into The Station, all the way from Ireland. Cover is $20 (cash only at the door). The doors open at 7pm and BBQ will start being served. Be sure to BYOB or drink of choice, and feel free to bring a side dish or dessert to share if you like but it’s not necessary. They're not a restaurant, but just a group of like minded folks who enjoy great music and smoked BBQ! They don't sell the BBQ, but they do encourage tipping the smoke master if you decide to eat! Please send an RSVP request via email to [email protected] You can show up without an RSVP if you prefer, and they'll let you know at the door if there are available seats, but shows often sell out so it's best to RSVP.
