TVA seeks volunteers for Public Lands Day events

— KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Valley Authority is seeking volunteers to participate in National Public Lands Day on Saturday.

TVA says it is sponsoring volunteer activities around the Tennessee Valley, including a guided bird walk on the Muscle Shoals Reservation and clean-up and sign installation on Guntersville Reservoir, both in Alabama.

Tennessee-based activities include installation of two trailhead kiosks at the East Lakeshore trail on Tellico Reservoir, removal of invasive vegetation on Watts Bar Reservation, installation of bluebird boxes near Boone Reservoir, and debris removal around Fort Patrick Henry Reservoir.

National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest single-day volunteer event for public lands.

Interested volunteers should visit www.tva.com or contact the TVA Environmental Information Center at 800-882-5263.
