A summer program just for adults will launch this summer at the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont, offering a five-day, four-night residential experience June 20-24. 

Called Naturalist Week, the program will be a unique opportunity for adults to disconnect, unwind and discover the wonders of the Smoky Mountains with activities and adventures guided by Tremont’s experienced on-staff naturalists. The week is designed for all levels of experience, from casual nature-lovers to seasoned explorers. Activities will include animal tracking, birding, exploring cultural history, identifying plants, stargazing and storytelling around the campfire.

Register at gsmit.org/naturalist-week. Cost includes food, lodging, instruction and materials inside the national park.
