What’s your outdoor jam, NASH? The hills, water, forests, and mountainsides are calling — and TennGreen Land Conservancy’s Hike-a-Thon is here to answer.

Registration is open for this free, month-long event that kicks off Saturday, April 1 and is open for all levels of hikers, paddlers, climbers, trail runners, and mountain bikers. Through this fundraising event, you register online and then get outside to compete against other individuals and teams for the chance to win awesome prizes. The best part: no vigorous activity or expertise is required. You decide how you want to participate.

Proceeds benefit TennGreen Land Conservancy, an environmental nonprofit that protects, cares for, and connects people with Tennessee’s natural world.

In addition to protecting more than 5,000 acres of forests and open spaces in Tennessee in 2022 alone, the nonprofit also:

  • Expanded Fall Creek Falls State Park by more than 2,000 acres
  • Acquired four acres adjacent to Lockeland Springs Park
  • Expanded Pogue Creek Canyon State Natural Area and Blackburn Fork Wildlife Management Area

Get outside for a good cause.*
