These animals don't live in the forest, but they do know the trail like the back of their paws. People bring their pets on the Appalachian Trail for a myriad of reasons, mostly because it gets lonely out there, but also for support.

"Since life began on Earth, countless creatures have come and gone, rendered extinct by naturally changing physical and biological conditions."

In the Appalachian trail area and in the Appalachian Mountains, the population of many animal species have been declining over the years. Some species are even disappearing before our very own eyes, or have disappeared in the past without our generation not even getting to see or discover them.  What is causing these beautiful creatures to disappear or to be on the brink of extinction? Throughout my exhibit you will learn and discover the reasons why these species are declining or some miraculously coming back to the park.
