Through PowerPoint presentations, the historical life of Cataloochee Valley will be examined. Homesteading, stories, elk and their re-introduction into the valley will be covered. One of the last two classes will be a five to six hour field trip to the valley to visit the houses and hopefully hear the elk bugle during the rut, their mating season.

Wilma Durpo’s (wilma@durpo.com) passion for nature and the Smoky Mountains National Park, especially Cataloochee Valley and the re-introduction of elk, is evident in her study, photography and exploration of the area.
