Brief Description: Great Smoky Mountains National Park is world-renowned for its diversity of wildflowers and salamanders. Explore cove forests and stream-side habitats for salamanders as well as the blooms of spring such as trillium, foamflower, mayapple and violets. Learn techniques for studying salamanders and explore the fascinating life histories of the mountain’s spring wildflowers, from pollination to seed dispersal. Moderately strenuous hiking is likely.
Cost: $50 (includes lodging, some meals and transportation to and from Raleigh). A certificate of course completion for this workshop is available and can be turned into the school district for renewal credits.
Please note this Spring Trek trip leaves Raleigh at 3:45 p.m. on May 3. The cost of this Trek is reduced due to a generous gift through the Friends of the Smokies. Due to this reduction of cost, Friends of the Museum discounts are unavailable.
