Our "Trail of Trees II: Jumbo Boswell Traverse" Road Trip tour is one we've anticipated doing for several years. We will be joining up with the folks in Calico Rock during the city's annual Mountain Man Rendezvous and Native-American Day at the end of our route to participate in the Trail of Tears Remembrance Walk. Then we will be treated to a Native-American Trail Tree presentation at the Calico Rock History Museum by our frined Bob Gaut. We'll visit Jumbo Schoolhouse, The Grafted Trees at Jumbo, the Jumbo Thong Tree, the Twiasted Tree on Jumbo Road, the Boswell Schoolhouse, The site of the first county courthouse at Athens, and if we have time, Sadieville Falls. Also new for this event, will be our partnership with Freda Cruse Hardison and the Nikki Lee Atwell Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization supporting Art, Music, and the Humanities in our region. All proceeds from T-Shirt Sales will benefit the organization's efforts including an upcoming joint project with property-owners to encircle an area to protect the Grafted Trees at Jumbo as well as a marked driving tour Route being planned to honor the Trail of Trees through Izard County.
