It's never too early to begin planning for one of the biggest outdoor events in the Smokies. This year, the 22nd Annual Wilderness Wildlife Week will take place during the week of January 7-14, 2012.
Considered to be the ultimate Smoky Mountain experience, Wilderness Wildlife Week is a series of activities designed to connect visitors with the great outdoors.
You’ll learn from more than 100 experts who will share their knowledge of the outdoors in more than 175 seminars, lectures and hands-on workshops. You'll also have the opportunity to get closer to nature with your choice of more than 50 guided walks and hikes.
Music lovers will enjoy authentic Smoky Mountain music performed live during AppalachiaFest.
Wilderness Wildlife Week has been a Southeast Tourism Society “Top 20 Event in the Southeast” 10 times now.
