Kathy and Joel Zachry have been leading small groups into the Smokies black bear habitat for 40 seasons as instructors and former directors of the University of Tennessee and National Park Service award-winning Smoky Mountain Field School.  With more than 50 combined years of backcountry experience, they have conducted group trips into the Alaskan wilderness beginning in 1988.  Together they completed section-hiking the 2,175 miles of the famed Appalachian Trail in 2005.  Join the authors of Bears We’ve Met – Short Stories of Close Encounters for their eighteenth season at Snowbird on daily hikes and for evening presentations as they share their vast knowledge and experience on the culture, history, and both flora and fauna of our Southern Appalachians.

Hiking event times are decided daily during the week by the hosts. A walk or hike will always take place after breakfast, approximately 9:30 am.
