Hardin County tourism department seeks input Friday on Tennessee RiverLine
The Hardin County Convention and Visitors Bureau’s Tennessee RiverLine Committee is hosting a tour and community engagement event this week.
The bureau’s Tennessee RiverLine team will be touring the 46 miles of waterfront along the Tennessee River and Pickwick Lake, to learn more about existing recreational opportunities, wildlife, and hospitality amenities, and explore their relationships with the waterways.
Additionally, there will be a community engagement event to seek input from the public about the county’s partnership with RiverLine.
“We need the input of citizens to help Hardin County realize its full potential for economic development, public health, equitable access and environmental stewardship,” Hardin County Tourism Director Beth Pippin said.
The RiverLine team will also be partnering with Shiloh National Military Park for a hike along the park’s Indian Mounds trail that is open to the public.
Hardin County is one of 20 Tennessee River communities of the Tennessee RiverTowns program and part of the Tennessee RiverLine, a regional trail system along the county’s waterfronts. RiverLine’s goal is to establish activities at river towns along the 652 miles of the Tennessee River, from Knoxville to Paducah. The Tennessee RiverLine initiative is led by the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and is also supported by the Tennessee Valley Authority.
The community engagement event for the county’s RiverLine program takes place at the Tennessee River Museum, 495 Main St., Savannah, on Friday, Aug. 19, from 3-7 p.m.
The hike at Shiloh Park will be at the Indian Mounds on Saturday, Aug. 20, from 9-11 a.m.
