Honoring Lynne McCoy's half century dedication to local wildlife


In honor of International Women's Day, the University of Tennessee Arboretum Society will pay tribute to an East Tennessee woman who provided rehabilitation to local injured and orphaned wildlife. During her 49 years of caregiving, the late Lynne McCoy took over 17,000 animals into her home: hawks, opossums, owls, squirrels, finches, cardinals, snakes, ducks, groundhogs, cranes, turtles, vultures, whatever needed her.  She was state and federally permitted to care for all that required safe shelter until they were able to be released back into the wild. 


Join UT Arboretum education coordinator, Michelle Campanis, and naturalist, artist, and author Stephen Lyn Bales via Zoom on March 7 at 7pm EST for the March First Thursday Nature Supper Club ,"A Tribute to Lynne  McCoy, Wildlife Caregiver Extraordinaire."
