Wondering what to do tonight? No need to check your planner—we’ve got your daily post on what’s happening around town.

A one-man conversation about conservation
Aldo Leopold may have been born in Iowa in 1887, been instrumental in instituting the national system of preserving wilderness and likely never came to Chattanooga. However, the conservationist, forester and writer left behind a legacy that paved the way for Tennessee’s 11 wilderness areas and caught the attention of a native Scenic City storyteller.

Playwright and performer Jim Pfitzer is also a Leopold scholar and has developed a one-man show on the American figure’s life and the continued conversation about today’s conservation and environmentalism. Pfitzer takes part in University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's Earth Week with tonight's performance at the University Center.

Each ticket buys two whiskey cocktails, and each guest will be treated to a flight of Prichard’s catalog with the accompanying tasting talk by the distillery’s national sales manager, Terry Marshall.
