This camp explores the WILD SIDE of the Smokies. Our backcountry Ecological Expedition camps in the woods and sets up field experiments in support of the All-Taxa Biodiversity Inventory, an ambitious project that is attempting to document all of the estimated 100,000 species found in the Smokies. Butterflies, beetles, birds, and botany are just a few of the subjects of our investigations as we explore the creeks and hollows in search of the next organism new to the park or even to science!
