Ijams receives large donation from Grayson Subaru

Local News

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – Ijams Nature Center received a large check Monday donated by Grayson Subaru in its largest donation the auto dealer has ever made.

The check is for nearly $22,000 and is the result of the 2018 “Subaru Share the Love” event. 

All that money will go toward helping Ijams clean and restore a new 13.5-acre area, now called the “Grayson Subaru Preserve.” 

We’re told it will become a “cutting edge nature play area” – for children. 

Plus, some of the work on the horizon includes removing invasive plant species and opening the creek up.
