Great Smoky Mountains National Park officials invite the public to attend a special program titled Stories, Songs, and Lore Celebrating the Natural World presented by well-known naturalist storyteller Doug Elliott. The hour-long program will be held on the porch of the Oconaluftee Visitor Center on Friday, July 26 at 1 pm.
“We are delighted to offer this opportunity to the public free of charge,” said Lynda Doucette, Supervisory Park Ranger. “This is a chance for families to enjoy an hour of fun and learning as Doug weaves stories of natural history in the Great Smoky Mountains.”
Elliott regularly writes articles for regional and national magazines, and has authored five books, produced a number of award winning recordings of stories and songs, and is occasionally seen on PBS-TV and the History Channel.
The Oconaluftee Visitor Center is located on U.S. Highway 441, 2 miles north of Cherokee, NC. For more information call the park’s Oconaluftee Visitor Center at (828) 497-1904.
