TN: Weekend activities at David Crockett Birthplace Park

MORRISTOWN, Tenn. — Several educational programs, including a session about an invasive insect threatening ash trees, are planned for the end of the week at the David Crockett Birthplace State Park.

Activities on Friday begin at 10 a.m. with “Homestead Handles,” a demonstration near the cook kitchen at the homestead about the techniques used to repair and create handles for tools pioneers used every day, according to a release from the park. At 1 p.m., “Hoeing the Hills,” will illustrate how the Crockett family grew food for themselves in the garden. That demonstration will be at the homestead.
