AT film tour coming to Franklin

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy will show the film “Appalachian Impressions,” Friday, Oct. 18, at Drake Educational Center in Franklin. The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with refreshments, followed by the film, trail information, a meet-and-greet with hikers, expert speakers and a raffle. 

The film features stories from hikers who have hiked the Appalachian Trail, and about the changing seasons and different trail towns along the route from Georgia to Maine. The film is on a 15-city nationwide tour and is part of a push by the conservancy to sign up 2,180 new members this year, one new member for each mile of the Appalachian Trail.

Registration for the event includes a membership to the conservancy. Tickets are $30 per adult and are available online.
