Member Barb McGuire said that Gardner talked about her time as a student at Middle Tennessee State University before training to become a park ranger.

Gardner also presented two old park ranger outfits to the members in attendance.

Table donations of $105 went to the Shepherd’s House of Tullahoma.

The next meeting, set for Nov. 7, will feature David Withers, a zoologist with the National Heritage Program for the Department of Environment and Conservation.
