Great Smoky Mountains NP Celebrates 75th Annivesary

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is celebrating a major milestone in 2009. The park, established June 15, 1934, will mark its 75th anniversary with a yearlong celebration of the people who made it possible and an emphasis on the stewardship required to keep it viable for the next 75 years and beyond.

Stewardship, park superintendent Dale Ditmanson explains in a special anniversary edition of Smokies Life magazine, is more than just a word.

“It really speaks to our responsibility to care for this wonderful place. The one thing the 75th anniversary is not about is just blowing out candles on a cake and going home,” he said.

Instead, the anniversary will serve to commemorate and highlight the park’s biologically diverse natural resources, cultural history, and the host of recreational and educational opportunities it offers the more than 9 million visitors who pass through its gates each year.
