Southern Appalachian Naturalist Certification Program
The Great Smoky Mountains Institute in Tremont, Tennessee is offering a certification course in the natural history of the southern Appalachians. Details are here.
Courses will cover the ecology of the southern Appalachians, bird life, plants, aquatic natural history, reptiles and amphibians, mammals and more.
The classes are focused on the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, but nearly everything one could learn here is applicable elsewhere in the southern Appalachians. Sounds like a great idea for those who have the time.
