I support Friends of the Smokies because they provide funding to protect our native brook trout. But whatever you love about Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Friends supports! Whether it’s trails, old historic farmsteads, wildlife or beautiful views, Friends of the Smokies is working hard to care for our park so we can all enjoy it forever.
