Great Smoky Mountains National Park App

Great Smoky Mountains National Park Biodiversity Mapper

Click to View the Mapper

If you love the Smokies and enjoy being in the great outdoors, the new Species Mapper web app might be right up your alley. And, this app will evolve as Park Rangers and scientists continue collecting data that make up the biodiversity of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

What this means to nature lovers and visitors to the area like yourself, is that you can use the app to discover and explore the locations of your favorite wildlife, plants and flowers. If you already have favorite destinations in the park, you can view that area and be on the lookout for the species most likely to be found there. Check out the app to help you plan your excursions in the Smokies!
