Connect with nature from home

Tremont Institute is working through quarantine to connect people and nature using its website and social media channels.

Teacher naturalists are sharing the historical and cultural roots of Southern Appalachian music through recorded songs, with other posts focusing on nature mysteries. A series of nature journal prompts on social media and Tremont’s website help people create a journal documenting nature they can observe in their own backyards and homes. 

Tremont is also sharing educational resources from local partners in the Smokies and other environmental organizations across the country. Recently staff from Tremont Institute collaborated with staff members at the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Ohio on a video exchange to help share the histories of each national park with a broader audience.
