Here in Chattanooga, Forever Moccasin Bend is a fundraising effort to build parking and new visitor amenities at the Gateway Site - the Hamm Road entrance - of the Moccasin Bend National Archeological District.

One person who knows well the history of Moccasin Bend - and has helped to shape what it is today - is Mickey Robbins, now on the board of National Park Partners.

I spoke with him - and with Tricia Mims, executive director of National Park Partners - in the first of a series of conversations this month, only on “Scenic Roots,” about Moccasin Bend.
