spring in the mountains

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a hotspot for biodiversity and spring is a wonderful time to experience it! The park is also a crucible for studying how humans are impacting the environment. Participate in ongoing research projects studying the impacts of air quality and climate change and bring home ideas to teach about our interdependence with the natural world.
