Lunch and Learn: Interacting with the Land, Tourism in State and National Parks

August 18, 2022 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM


Millions of people visit national and state parks every year, generating billions of dollars. This visitorship not only shows the economic impact of tourism, but also a societal interest in the outdoors and environmental impact to the land. Join us for the first event in our Fall Lunch and Learn series, Interacting With the Land: Tourism in National and State Parks. Moderated by Director of Public Programs, Jeff Sellers, our panelists will discuss the past and present of tourism in national and Tennessee state parks.

The panel will feature Hobart Akin, Cultural Resources and Exhibits Specialist for Tennessee State Parks, Catherine Price, Education and Outreach Coordinator for Cumberland River Compact, and Candice Candeto, curator at the Tennessee State Museum.

This Lunch and Learn event is in-person in the Museum’s Digital Learning Center at 12:00. No RSVPs are required to attend this free event. It will also be livestreamed on the Museum’s website at

Boxed lunches made by Apple Spice Nashville are available for purchase for $12.24 to enjoy during the event. The lunches will include a sandwich, chips, and a cookie. Lunch orders must be placed by noon on Tuesday, August 16th. Please order your boxed lunch on the ticket registration page.
