Value of Diversity
In nature, environmental stability occurs in areas having the greatest diversity in plants and animals. The Great Smoky Mountains is one of the most diverse regions on Earth. As in nature, the strength of Smoky Mountain Native Plants Association is built upon our differences. It takes each person's skills, knowledge, talents, and gifts combined with all of our collective, cultural, economic, education, and business experience to be successful. Our interdependence is the foundation of our prosperity.
