Hiker Food Is Not Bear Food

"Getting bears out of backpacker food fare" is the title of a story in the 25 January Smoky Mountain News. It highlights ATC grant of
$2,000 from its specialty license plate funds to the Friends of the Smokies group for the installation of poles and cables that backpackers can use to store food out of the reach of black bears.
This was done at the Spence Field and Peck’s Corner Shelters.
