You’re invited to the Grand Opening of the Headquarters and Visitor Center
for Tennessee National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday, July 19th from 10:00
am to 4:00 pm. Dignitaries from the community as well as the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service and members of the Friends of Tennessee National Wildlife
Refuge will be speaking briefly before cutting the ribbon on the building.
The building is located at 1371 Wildlife Drive in Springville just 15
minutes from Paris. It can be reached by turning onto Oak Grove Road South
from Highway 79 North of Paris, TN and following the directional signs.
Activities outside on the visitor center lawn will include having live
animals such as a bald eagle, hawks, owls, snakes, and turtles for
viewing; turtle races; archery range; live songbird banding; nature
crafts; history of the rivers; building a bluebird box, local mammals and
track identification; aquatics and reservoir biology; soil conservation
and rainfall demonstration; insects and butterflies; beginning bird
watching; and children’s nature games.
After July 19th, the new refuge visitor center will be open free to the
public Monday through Saturday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. The refuge considers
the center to be instrumental in connecting people with the natural
resources that abound at the refuge. The environmental education wing will
offer free field trip and program opportunities to school children and
groups visiting the refuge.
