Mike Smith – Forest Floor Connoisseur

January 14, 2014 |

This year will be Droop Mountain State Park Superintendant Mike Smith’s 30th year at the park. At Traveling 219 we’ve been very grateful to have been able to work with Mike on so many occasions. Mike has an abundant wealth of knowledge about the area. If you have any questions regarding local history, geography, geology, or ecology, you can bet that Mike has an answer for you.

West Virginia Uncovered, from the WVU School of Journalism, featured a story on Mike this past year. It features a side of Mike you may not have been so familiar with, but probably aren’t surprised by!

This video was made by WVU students Von Barclay and Greg Olenik. It can be found on the West Virginia Uncovered website here.

You can hear more from Mike Smith in our Droop Battle memorial hikes series, including the Hollows of Droop Mountain.
