Old Forest Jamboree!

Mark your calendars now -- we'll be throwing down another Old Forest Jamboree on Sunday, February 13, 4pm-7pm, at the fabulous Hi-Tone Cafe.

We ask a $10 donation from adults. Kids are welcome and get in free, as always.

Here's the Facebook event so you can invite your friends and neighbors.

We are very grateful to the many talented musicians who give their time and energy to help protect the Old Forest, and to Jonathan Kiersky at the Hi-Tone Cafe for his unfailing generosity.

Come together

It's wonderful to see Park Friends Inc. advocating, in today's Commercial Appeal, for a conservation easement to protect all of Overton Park. CPOP first made this modest proposal in April of 2010 (you can shortcut to the PDF or read the full saga here) and we need all the help we can get!

This year, we look forward to working closely with Park Friends Inc. to create the Old Forest State Natural Area and obtain a meaningful conservation easement to protect all 342 acres of Overton Park.
