The Cumberland Darter 5K Run/Walk is being held to draw attention to Forest Service plans to clearcut nearly 5,000 acres in the Jellico Mountains of Whitley and McCreary Counties. This will lead to flooding, landslides, invasive species, and more. Endangered species such as the Cumberland Darter rely on the area’s streams for critical habitat.
