Wild South Cultural Heritage Director, Lamar Marshall led a field trip with ten Cherokee youth in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park last week along a historic Cherokee trail known today as the Noland Creek Trail.  The group was sponsored by Cherokee Choices, a diabetes prevention program that encourages members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians to get outdoors to hike, exercise, and to grow gardens of healthy vegetables. The Wild South Cultural Heritage Department is growing the focus of its work to indigenous educational outreach which includes teaching conservation and ecology and we are incredibly excited!
