Smokies workshop to engage teachers

An all-day workshop on July 31 will explore the ethics and ethos behind ecology and conservation in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The workshop is part of the Leopold Education Project, which promotes thoughtful land stewardship by forging a connection with the environment.

“Anyone who wants to educate the next generation about conservation stewardship and land ethics is encouraged to attend this workshop,” said Rob Hawk, director of the Jackson and Swain County Cooperative Extension. “The goal of the program is to create an ecologically literate citizenry by bringing people in direct contact with the land and learning how to read the landscape.”

Held at the Oconaluftee Visitor Center at the N.C. entrance to the Smokies on U.S. 441 outside Cherokee. Cost is $30.
