Weekend To Do List, January 3-5, 2020

Do: Sunrise Hike

When: Saturday, January 4, 7am-8:30am
Where: Seven Islands State Birding Park / 2809 Kelly Ln, Kodak 

Join Ranger Stephanie on a sunrise hike on the Hickory Ridge Trail, and watch Mother Nature paint its morning masterpiece. This hike will be moderately strenuous as they will be gaining roughly 300 feet in elevation in about 0.6 miles, so please keep that in mind. They will hike up to the high point in elevation at Seven Islands, and catch the morning sunrise from the viewpoint there! Ranger Stephanie will discuss some of the birds currently found in the park and the trees along the trail. This will be an out and back hike where they will start and finish right at the bluebird barn. If you're a photographer bring your camera! Since Seven Islands doesn’t open until sunrise, this will allow participants the ability to come in a little earlier than normal, and hopefully catch a beautiful sunrise as a reward for the hike! Each participant MUST have a light source with them like a flashlight/headlamp or they won’t be allowed to participate due to safety reasons. Closed toe shoes, snacks, and water are also recommended. This hike will only be approximately 1.2 miles, but hopefully we will be blessed with a beautiful sunrise! Please meet at the Bluebird Barn by 7:00am.

If you have any questions regarding this hike, please contact Ranger Stephanie at [email protected] or by cell phone 715-630-6848

Watch & Listen: Science in Motion (Exhibition)   

When: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, 4pm-7pm
Where: McClung Museum of Natural History / 1327 Circle Park Dr, Knoxville  

See it before it's gone! Ending January 5th! 

This exhibition offers a rich view of the scientific studies done by three groundbreaking photographers––Eadweard Muybridge, Harold Edgerton, and Berenice Abbott. They began their photographic careers in different manners: Muybridge as an experimenter in early photographic processes, Edgerton as a scientist, and Abbott as an artist. In the photos displayed here, Muybridge and Edgerton captured movement, while Abbott illustrated scientific principles with her images.

The medium’s pioneers were inventors, scientists, and mathematicians whose experiments dramatically affected the art form and forged a reciprocal relationship between art and science that continues to this day.

This exhibition has been loaned through the Bank of America Art in Our Communities® program.
