2017 Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage
April 11, 2017 @ 8:00 am - April 15, 2017 @ 5:30 pm
Join us for the 67th Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage in the Smokies on April 11-15, 2017!
The Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage is an annual five-day event in Great Smoky Mountains National Park offering professionally guided programs which explore the region’s rich wildflowers, wildlife, ecology, culture, and natural history through walks, motorcades, photographic tours, art classes, and evening seminars. Most programs are outdoors in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. All programs are held, rain or shine.
This is a great time to observe how the wilderness recovers from fire damage. Several walks this year explore the effects of fire on a natural environment. The Friday evening program by National Park Zone Fire Management Officers, Greg Salansky and/or Rob Klein, discusses “Fire Ecology of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park”.
