We are thrilled to be teaming up with the fine folks at Flying Squirrel for National Park Night on September 19th! Part of our week-long series of events commemorating the 155th Anniversary of the Battle of Chickamauga, this is a fun and easy way to support YOUR Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park while enjoying an evening of fantastic food and extensive drink selections. Flying Squirrel will generously donate 10% of the proceeds from open to close to further the mission of National Park Partners. We can't wait to see you there!

UPDATE ON WEATHER: While there is about a 50-50 chance of a shower or thunderstorm, the forecast as of Wednesday morning is not calling for a steady downpour and so we will keep the event at Point Park! We recommend you bring an umbrella just in case and dress appropriately for potentially wet grass at the park. See you Thursday!
Don't miss our 10th Annual National Treasures: Party at Point Park! We'll have fantastic food and drinks, great music from the Power Players, and a variety of unique silent auction items from local shops, restaurants, experiences, and more! Best of all, this is the only time all year that the iconic Umbrella Rock, Chattanooga's first tourist attraction, is open to our guests for photos. We'll provide the ambience and the incredible views of the Tennessee Valley from Point Park - all we need is you! Come Treasure YOUR Park with us!

National Park Partners received a grant through the "Centennial and Beyond" program of the National Environmental Education Foundation to support a two-year partnership between the National Park Service and the Bessie Smith Cultural Center. The goal of the project is for the National Park Service to develop programming that engages new audiences from the communities in and around park lands. Through the grant support, National Park Partners developed a walking tour map of historic African-American sites in the downtown Chattanooga area, in conjunction with National Park Service Rangers, and will be hosting an inaugural walk of several of the sites. All are welcome!
9:00 a.m. - Gather at Bessie Smith Cultural Center for light refreshments and remarks. The tour begins around 9:30 a.m. and will be finished by 11:00 a.m. Dress appropriately for the summer weather. Click here to visit our Facebook event page - there, you can let us know if you plan to attend, and share the event with your friends and family!
This annual event raises funds to support the mission of National Park Partners, thanks to the generosity of the Chattanooga Lookouts! NPP collects proceeds of advance ticket sales, with hundreds of tickets donated each year to area youth groups such as Y-CAP, area recreation leagues, and the RBI (Returning Baseball to the Inner City) program. Contact us at 423.648.5623 if you'd like to purchase tickets, either to attend yourself or to donate tickets to these youth programs. Tickets are only $5 each, and Mondays are "Kids Eat Free" night at the Lookouts (kids 12 and under receive a free hot dog and drink). National Park Rangers will be on hand to greet the fans and hand out special giveway items. Visit the Lookouts website for directions and stadium information.
Thank you, Chattanooga Lookouts, for this wonderful partnership!
