Forest Service hosting special events at Koomer

WINCHESTER, Ky., June 29, 2012 The Daniel Boone National Forest is hosting special events at the Koomer Ridge Campground in Wolfe County. Throughout the summer, visitors will enjoy a variety of local presenters and entertainers each weekend.

Some upcoming programs include presentations about black bears, reptiles, search and rescue in the Red River Gorge, and how to play a dulcimer. Musical performances include Bluegrass music by the Mike Creech Band and folksongs by local artist Anne MacFie.

The events are held at an outdoor amphitheater inside the campground. The forest surroundings provide plenty of shade to escape the summer heat.

Vehicle parking space is located one-fourth mile from the amphitheater. Accessible parking for persons with disabilities is available near the amphitheater. Visitors should bring a flashlight in case of walking after dark.   

The events are free and open to the public, scheduled each Saturday evening until Labor Day. Most programs begin at 7 p.m. 

For more information, contact the Gladie Learning Center at 606-663-8100.
