NASHVILLE --- Joan Stevens from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Tennessee National Wildlife Refuge will be the guest speaker at the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s Nature @ Noontime program on Thursday, Sept. 5. The program will be held at TWRA’s Region II Ray Bell Building. The program will be from noon-1 p.m.
Joan Stevens’ presentation will highlight the eagerly-awaited completion of the new 12,500-square feet administrative and new visitors’ center in Henry County. Located on Kentucky Lake, the TNWR encompasses more than 50,000 acres and is an important resting and feeding area for wintering waterfowl and a host of other wildlife.
She is also the Tennessee coordinator for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s annual Federal Jr. Duck Stamp artwork contest, of which the TWRA is a partner. She will speak about the program and how students from K-12 can participate.
Hosted by the Information and Education Division, Nature @ Noontime is held the first Thursday of each month with the exception of July. TWRA Nature @ Noontime presentations are about natural resources related topics and last about 30-45 minutes, allowing time for discussion during the allotted lunch hour.
