Thursday, May 5, on Zoom – 7pm Eastern Time Zone The highest elevations of the Great Smoky Mountains are like another world. The environment is more like Canada than the Tennessee Valley. Consequently, you find different birds there in the summer, species like raven, saw-whet owl, peregrine falcon, black-capped chickadee and many more. Come explore this special environment with us and the wildlife that lives there.

Join Michelle Campanis, education coordinator at UT Arboretum, and local naturalist, Stephen Lyn Bales, for a look at the birds of the high country in their May First Thursday Nature Supper Club via Zoom. The program is free and will be recorded and sent to all who register. Closed captions are available. You can have whatever you like for supper and you do not even have to put your shoes on. Please note this program is Eastern Time Zone.

Stephen Lyn Bales is the author of Natural Histories, Ghost Birds and Ephemeral by Nature all published by the University of Tennessee Press. He may be contacted at [email protected]
