"A Walk in the Woods: Hiking in the Appalachians"

On Thursday, November 13 from 12 noon-1:00pm, David Brown, librarian at Dalton State College and former park ranger in the Great Smoky Mountains, will present "A Walk in Woods: Hiking in the Appalachians." The presentation will be in room 235 of the library and will last about one hour.

Brown  will also talk about search and rescues, snake bites, and bear attacks on the Appalachian trail as well as other fascinating stories from his experience as a park ranger.

Before working in higher education, Brown worked as a park ranger in the Great Smoky Mountains, Grand Canyon and Mount St. Helens.
