Support education through experiences

Your gift to Tremont gives students the opportunity to experience education in new ways inside Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Help us continue to give students exciting experiences including:

  • hiking to the waterfall to learn about geology
  • getting in the Middle Prong to study stream life
  • participating in research on salamanders

You make it possible for participants to grow as they live and study together inside one of the most ecologically diverse and beautiful classrooms.
