Tour the Smokies with CORE!

UPDATE:  Unfortunately, due to the imminent closing of CORE, our tour of the Smokies is cancelled.  Refunds will be issued for those who already signed up, and no new registrations will be accepted.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

Last year, I organized a tour of the Shenandoah National Park for the annual CBS conference, and that tour turned out to be a great success!  I had such a good time doing it, I decided to try it again this year.  In May, the Center for Origins Research will be offering a one-day bus tour of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  Here's the official tour description:
The Bryan College Creation Tour will be a unique time to see the Smoky Mountains through the lens of Biblical creationism. The tour will be led by Todd Wood and Roger Sanders, both faculty of the Bryan College Center for Origins Research.  Dr. Wood has spent 12 years researching creationist biology, and Dr. Sanders has a vast experience in botany and ecology research. 

These experts will help you to understand how the Great Smoky Mountains relate to the history of the world as recorded in the Bible.  How were the mountains formed?  How do they relate to the great Flood of Noah's time?  What about the plants and animals who call the park home?  What do they tell us about God's wise designs?  This is your opportunity to find out first hand.  You may think you know the Smokies, but you've never experienced them like this!
The same tour will be offered on two different days: Thursday May 16 or Saturday May 18.  Lunch is included in the price, and there will be no strenuous hiking involved (we might take a stroll or two but nothing serious).  Regular cost is $60, or $40 for seniors and students.  If you want to go, you better sign up soon.  We've already started filling up the bus!

Again to be clear: This tour is in no way affiliated with, sponsored by, or endorsed by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
