Christine Hoyer

Tennessee State Advocate

You’ll always find me outside. My passion for the outdoors turned into a career, first on the Appalachian Trail and then as the Backcountry Manager for Great Smoky Mountains National Park, based in Gatlinburg. I to work to protect the resources/visitor experience through the management all aspects of the recreation experience. I am honored to extend my reach beyond the park. Lack of awareness, litter issues, and impacts to the native wildlife are some of the challenges in Tennessee. I call all Leave No Trace-ers and interested volunteers to get involved – together we can extend Leave No Trace efforts across the state!

Let’s protect and enjoy our natural world together
