The Great Smoky Mountains Conservation Association is the original non-profit group formed in 1923 to create a national park in the Smokies and today continues working for the park’s interests.

The Association raised funds needed to buy lands for the park, through gifts and donations, and by gaining financial support from city and state governments. It sparked a publicity campaign in national media and hosted visits by state and national legislators to get the job done.

Today it provides services to the park which otherwise might be unmet. It has given funds for apprehension of poachers and vandals; for natural history studies and publications; park signs and markers; subsidies and loans for needed improvements.
