University of Tennessee
Forestry, Wildlife & Fisheries Students
tour Coal Creek to
prepare for teaching a class on
watershed ecology to the Briceville School students

20 August 2014

On August 20, 2014, Dr. Mark Fly brought his UT graduate students in Wildlife, Fisheries, and Forestry to Coal Creek to learn about its history and ecology.  Why Coal Creek?...because someday soon, they will be working in this type of rural area.  At first, they will be viewed as outsiders, but with the potential to become respected community leaders.  Barry Thacker and Carol Moore led the tour, providing advice on making that transition. 

As part of the tour, the UT students ate lunch with students from Briceville Elementary School, where they will teach a class on watershed ecology on August 22nd.  LOTS of photos from the day can be found at
