Layers Of History And Nature At Moccasin Bend

In the past few weeks, we have shared a few conversations about the Moccasin Bend National Archeological District here in Chattanooga.

For nearly four decades, Sally Robinson has played a key role in revitalizing the downtown and riverfront development, including three terms on the Chattanooga City Council and the long road to Moccasin Bend as it is today.

"Forever Moccasin Bend" is the fundraising effort led by National Park Partners - starting with "Opening the Gateway" - that will add park and visitor amenities at the District's Gateway Site.

I spoke with her - and with Tricia Mims, executive director of National Park Partners.

You can listen to all of our "Forever Moccasin Bend" conversations online at wutc.org.
