Do you “lichen” lichen?  Do you know what a “water bear” is? These eight-legged creatures, scientifically known as tardigrade, are the “other bears” of the Smokies! Join a Park Ranger for a special in-depth science investigation into the microscopic world. Microscopes and other scientific equipment will be used to collect and view microscopic invertebrates such as water bears. Recommended for ages 10 and older.
