Wilderness Wildlife Week 2011, Recap #3

Wilderness Wildlife Week is a great place for all ages to go to. I like it because it talks about a lot of history and culture of the Appalachian people. One of my favorite classes was the “Walker Sisters of Little Greenbrier Community.” I did not know anything about the Walker Sisters, so it was a great opportunity for me to learn. Greenbrier is in the Smoky Mountain National Park. There were 7 Walker sisters, but one died early in life and one got married. So there were only 5 left, they lived in the house of their parents and tended the farm until they died.

The lady who spoke was named Robin Goddard. She showed some pictures of their house and farm. Robin knew the Walker sisters from the age of 3 until they died.  I like learning about other people who live in other times than we do, because we learn they are people just like us.

Learning to play the spoons.
We also went on an Owl Prowl. This is when you go out in the woods in the middle of the night and you call and watch for owls and listen for them. It was bitterly cold and snowy. We saw one Barred Owl, but did not hear any. We were listening for the Barred Owl, Great Horned and Screech Owl, all which are in the Smoky Mountains.
