Winning Combo-Pigeon Forge TN + Wilderness Wildlife Week
We traveled to Pigeon Forge TN and attended the 24th Annual Wilderness Wildlife Week which took place January 25th-February 1st, 2014 at the new LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge.
There were over 200 workshops & seminars on a huge variety of subjects such as photography, painting, wildlife exploration, local history and so much more. There were opportunities to talk with experts in several fields as well as hands on workshops. There were also over 50 hikes available for those wanting to explore a few of the local hiking areas and get up close to nature.
This was a fantastic travel stop for learning more about the local area, including it's history, and visiting with people that live and work in the area. The eagle in this photo was a rescued Eagle. This booth was set up to learn more about Eagles, which are found in the area.
Wilderness Wildlife Week has activities for everyone in the family to participate in, and it's all at no charge!
We are looking forward to traveling back to Pigeon Forge for the 2015 Wilderness Wildlife Week which will take place January 24th-31st, 2015
Wilderness Wildlife Week is part of the annual Winterfest in Pigeon Forge.
