Chattanooga OUTDOORS Show is NOT the Gear Swap!

Hey!  There has been some confusion with the new Outdoors Show coming to Camp Jordan.  THAT will be a cool event with lots of commercial vendors of outdoor related stuff. According to their email, they will have exhibitors from camping, hunting, ATV’s, rock climbing, kayaking, and just about everything!  Check out and go visit Camp Jordan May 8,9, & 10!

As for the GEAR SWAP, it’s personal folks and businesses who have gear to swap, sell, trade, etc.  Rock/Creek will be there….so will BOLD/GOLD from the YMCA…..and many folks who are cleaning out closets and garages so they can get more fun gear!!  The SWAP is on April 18th at the Gear Closet this year….and followed by a Pint Night to support outdoor programs at Red Bank Elementary School!!

Come join us on the 18th of April from 10 to 4….and beyond!!

“Save Water, Drink Wine”

Looking forward to CaribbeanSEA & TenneSEA’s second annual  “Save Water, Drink Wine” at The Barn Nursery on February 8th 5:30-8:00 !!!

This winter wine tasting event offers guests the opportunity to tour the warm and luxurious green-houses of The Barn Nursery while enjoying many varieties of fine wine from regional wineries paired with a variety of cheese, tapas and desserts.
“Save Water, Drink Wine” also offers guests the opportunity to talk with local wine and gardening experts as they walk through the greenhouses to each station, and the chance to talk clean water with CaribbeanSEA & TenneSEA volunteers and advocates!
The number of wineries in the greater Chattanooga region has exploded and each are very conscious of needing clean water! That is why CaribbeanSEA & TenneSEA decided hosting a wine tasting would be the perfect showcase of their mission “Educating, Empowering, and Inspiring communities to protect their water.”

Tickets are $40 each
