When Pigeon Forge launched Wilderness Wildlife Week more than 25 years ago, there were four programs on a single Saturday afternoon. Wilderness Wildlife Week has now expanded into a nearly week-long event with all ages and abilities in mind.
The home base for the programs in 2019 will be at LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge. Classes offered this year include: Moonshine: Spirited, Sweet and Savory with distiller Keener Shanton; Cherokee Myths and Truths; Wildflowers of Tennessee; bird banding; Waterfalls of the Smoky Mountains.
The event hosts vendors at various times throughout the event. The event features live music as well Boogertown Gap, The Knoxville Area Dulcimer Club, a Gospel Choir, and Ballads of the Appalachians are all scheduled to perform.
Einstein Simplified, a local improv group, will perform a Wilderness-Related comedy show on Wednesday evening.
Best of all, Wilderness Wildlife week is completely free to experience! Come down for seminars, demonstrations, hands-on activities and so much more.
