A visit with Powell students

Powell High School AP Environmental Science class spring 2014

One week ago I visited with the AP Environmental Science class taught by Coach Will Roberts at Powell High School, a.k.a. Panther Nation.

We talked about conservation, environmental studies, book writing and my ancestral link
to the Great Smokies. Each student had been assigned to read a portion of my two books: Natural Histories and Ghost Birds.

Chapters we discussed included pawpaws, Osage orange and the recovery of the wild turkey. Also of interest were my favorite hiking trail in the national park: Mt. Cammerer and the new hiking and biking trails in the Knoxville Urban Wilderness: South Loop adjacent to Ijams. Click here for : map.

Best of luck to all of you!
