FRIENDS OF GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK INC via Crowdrise
March 10, 2015
Since 1993, Friends of the Smokies has raised more than $47 million to support environmental education, historic preservation, trail rehabilitation and much more in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
During this contest, we need your help to fund a black bear research program. This research is aimed at keeping bears away from outside trash sources, keeping them healthier and living longer. Park biologists estimate there are 1500+ black bears in the Smokies and we believe each one is worth protecting.
**There will be a special prize for the individual who raises the most money on our team, so click "Fundraise for this campaign" and get started!** -------->
