The Land Trust for Tennessee hosts community events throughout the year at Glen Leven Farm, an historic, urban 64-acre farm that is not regularly open to the public.
Nature Hikes at Glen Leven Farm
10 minutes south of downtown Nashville, you’ll find The Land Trust for Tennessee’s Glen Leven Farm. This year, you’re invited to explore the historic urban farm’s 64 acres on the second Saturday of each month.
From the nature trail to the honeybee sanctuary, there’s always something new to see. Use the field guide to take a self-guided hike or check out the new family-friendly activity each month to learn more about Nashville’s unique landscape and history. Young explorers can take a StoryWalk through the arboretum and around the historic home as a tale unfolds page by page in a children’s book. And don’t forget to say hi to the miniature donkeys!
Guests are encouraged to reserve a timed-entry ticket online prior to visiting. Head to our Events page for upcoming dates.
