NPS Academy Great Smoky Mountains: Day Six

Posted on March 20, 2013 at 9:56am 0 Comments

Today was service day! We had a choice between working on trail maintenance or

working with a group of ESL (English second language) students from a local

elementary school. I chose to work with the students - we were going to have

them outside exploring nature so that sounded great to me!



We had a bit

of a delay when the students weren't able to come out to the park and we had to

After

breakfast, we set out to hike the Alum Cave Trail! The weather was...

This morning we were able to kind of shadow different park rangers and see what

it would be like to have their jobs. First, we got to work with an entomologist

- we collected aquatic invertebrates and looked at them under a microscope (in

case anyone was wondering about those interesting photos that I

posted). After that we met with a botanist and learned about how they manage

invasive species as well as raise native species to repopulate areas that have…
