New Watershed Path opening at Tennessee Aquarium Conservation Institute

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – A new interpretive trail, the Watershed Path, was dedicated at the Tennessee Aquarium Conservation Institute.

This morning people had the chance to explore the short walking trail.

Along the trail, there are five signs that explain the history of the area.

Organizers say it offers a chance to appreciate the region’s culture while gaining a better understanding of its ecological roots.

Anna George with the Tennessee Aquarium said, “Our goal with these signs were to tell this story of this place where we are. To tell the story of those who were here before us to 8,000 years ago and using this more as a temporary campsite but also to tell the story of the river and how we can protect it and make sure it is there for others to enjoy in the future.”

The Aquarium received a ten thousand dollar grant from the Chickamauga Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution to research and produce the Watershed Path.
