City of Knoxville to host conservation expo event

Posted:

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The city of Knoxville is planning a fall exposition to commemorate the National Conservation Exposition of 1913 and celebrate conservation in East Tennessee.

The Centennial Conservation Expo will take place Oct. 12 in Chilhowee Park.

The Expo will include historical displays, photographs and films, hands-on demonstrations and exhibits, children's activities, live entertainment, athletic competitions, multimedia presentations and events throughout the grounds of Chilhowee Park.

"Generations of dedicated East Tennesseans have accomplished great things in conservation during the past 100 years," Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero said. "From the Great Smoky Mountains to Ijams Nature Center, we have worked to preserve and protect wild areas, wildlife, air and water. The Centennial Conservation Expo will be an opportunity to showcase much of the work that has been done during the past century, and the work that is still being done."

For more information on the Expo in coming months, visit the event's website.
