Foundation Hosts First Ivy Creek Barn and Bluegrass Day
The Ivy Creek Foundation hosted a brand-new event Sunday afternoon for people to experience country music and culture in the outdoors.
The first Ivy Creek Barn and Bluegrass Day was held at the Ivy Creek Natural Area. Visitors got to listen to a live band, check out the barn on site, explore some trails, and hear some educational talks.
"What I've love for people to take away from this experience is to get some sort of change - some change in how they see the outdoors, so the outdoors isn't just a place to relax or a nice place. It's a special place," said Bruce Gatling-Austin, education coordinator at the Ivy Creek Foundation.
A silent auction was also held as a part of the event.
Organizers want to encourage people to come visit the education building and barn at Ivy Creek Natural Area for events throughout the week.
