The animal species featured in Great Smoky Mountains Association's 2022 wall calendar are all ones who live in Great Smoky Mountains National Park and also in a landscape near the park boundary called the Pigeon River Gorge. Just like the park, the gorge is a wild, rugged landscape where animals have traveled along ancient wildlife corridors for millennia in order to find food, mates, and shelter. GSMA is a partner in Safe Passage: The I-40 Pigeon River Gorge Wildlife Crossing Project, which is collaborating to make I-40, the highway that bisects the gorge, more permeable for wildlife and safer for people to drive. The calendar features wildlife photography from the Smokies as well as small illustrations from A Search for Safe Passage, GSMA's newest title educating youth ages 7-13 on wildlife crossings. It also includes seasonal flora and fauna information, like wildflower blooms by month, seasonal animal migrations to and from the park, and predicted peak leaf color dates. 11" x 11" wire bound.
