Smoky Mountain Field School

Explore Your Wild Side in the Smokies

The Smoky Mountain Field School will enter its 38th year of providing excellent educational programming in 2015.

The Field School is a successful partnership between the University of Tennessee and Great Smoky Mountains National Park, offering high-quality workshops, hikes, and adventures for people who want to learn more about their beloved Smokies.

These non-credit, weekend programs are taught by UT professors, naturalists, and other experts at various locations in and around the Park.

In 2015, we introduce several new programs to complement the programs you've grown to love each season.
