GATLINBURG, Tenn. (AP) — The nonprofit group Discover Life in America is hosting Biodiversity Days in the Smokies.

The workshops are free and open to all ages. They take place Thursday, Friday and Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. each day at the Twin Creeks Science Center, about one mile from downtown Gatlinburg. Those attending should bring lunch and water and dress for being outside in the weather.

Discover Life in America works jointly with the National Parks Service to identify and record all the species within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

More information is available at www.dlia.org . Those interested in registering for the workshops can call 865-430-4756.
