FRANKLIN, Tenn. – For the ultimate bird’s eye view, join Master Tree Climbing Instructor Tim Kovar, as he guides you high into the crown of a tree on August 12 at Pinkerton Park.
This afternoon of tree climbing is a unique opportunity to explore nature in a whole new way. Participants will ascend into the tree using the same rope-and-saddle method that canopy researchers use, which is the most versatile and safest climbing technique.
“Tree climbing is an adventure like no other, one that offers a unique perspective on nature and one that can change the way you view the natural world,” said Kovar, founder of Tree Climbing Planet . “And being able to offer it in Williamson County makes it all that much more special.”
The tree climb will take place from 3 – 7 p.m. in advance of the last Movies in the Park, which begins at 7:45 pm. The feature will be "Megamind," starring Will Ferrell. The tree climb and movie are free and open to the public. Participants must be at least seven years old for the tree climb.
