Cataloochee volunteers needed

Written by 

Volunteers are needed to help rangers manage traffic and establish safe wildlife viewing areas in the Cataloochee Valley area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. 

Located in Haywood County, Cataloochee is a remote area that has become a year-round destination since elk were reintroduced there in 2001. Volunteers will educate visitors about the area’s natural and cultural resources and inform them about park regulations. When elk are present, volunteers will focus on traffic management and educating visitors about elk. 

Volunteers are in particular demand for Saturday and Sunday afternoons, and evenings on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. They typically work at least one four-hour shift per week May through mid-November, traveling by ATV, bicycle or foot. 

A training session is required prior to starting, with the session to be scheduled based on interest. Contact Karl Danforth, This email address is being protected from spambots.
