Our River is More than a View
In collaboration with the Tennessee River Gorge Trust, Baylor School students are becoming stewards of Williams Island – a 400-acre wilderness within easy rowing distance. The island is already the site for archaeology and ornithology projects as well as recreational pursuits such as camping and fishing. Baylor School also hosts an aquatic summer camp in partnership with the Tennessee Aquarium, funded by the National Science Foundation.
