June Family Trekkers events include:

• June 18 at the Pounds Hollow Recreation Area

• June 25 at the Bell Smith Springs Recreation Area

All of the programs are from 10-11:30 a.m.

Each location has picnic areas and the Lake Glendale and Pounds Hollow hikes have swimming beaches. The hikes will help participants to discover natural wonders as they participate in various trail activities.
