Great Smokies National Park
Great Smoky Mountains National Park // Est. June 15, 1934
TOPIC: Wildlife Conservation
PROJECT: Appalachian Bear
PURPOSE: This tee supports Appalachian Bear Rescue. Each year a number of orphaned or injured Park bears are treated and housed in the nonprofit ABR center in Townsend until they can be released back into the Park. Prior to the creation of ABR, most of these animals were euthanized. When we sell 3000 tees, we fund the rescue of one bear and cover the costs from "rescue to release".
PARTNER: Friends of the Smokies
