Learning in the Wilderness


About one-and-a-half years ago, I was chosen to be part of the Class of 2016 which Tremont was sponsoring.  It was a group that was created to teach about nature and ecology to high schoolers that were graduating in 2016.  While being part of this program, I have learned many things about myself and about the Smoky Mountain National Park; some of which I will discuss here.

One of the major things I have learned about is how to better take care of the world we live in. I have learned of the detriments of invasive species and how we can help stop the spread of these species. I’ve learned how much I am actually able to do.   Before joining this program, I would have never believed that I could hike up to seven miles a day with 50 pounds on my back.  One of the best things I’ve learned, however, is knowing that kids like me can all come together for one purpose—to take care of the park we know and love.
