Bears of Our Smokies
Join savvy outdoorsman, 900-miler and Appalachian Bear Rescue board member Joey Holt for a day filled with fascinating facts about our Smokies black bear.
Holt brings both a keen perspective on bear habits and knowledge of how to avoid potentially troublesome encounters.
After informative class time, complete with multiple show and tell items, you’ll take an easy to moderate hike into the park’s backcountry in search of food options and possible den sites.
With his experience in tracking and interpreting terrain, Holt provides you with the best opportunities to identify bear trails, tracks, scats, and other often-missed signs.
