"Given the choice between hours of instruction in their normal classrooms and a day spent exploring the Smokies, most school kids would opt for the wooded expanse of the nation’s most visited National Park. So would their teachers. An educational field trip to Great Smoky Mountains National Park places students in one of the most species-rich wild areas in the world." - Doris Gove, Sightline Magazine.
Get your students involved in environmental education by participating in an All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory (ATBI) special project in the Smokies or by bringing the ATBI into your classroom.
