   Annual Report

    About This Publication
         For the first time in Friends of the Smokies history, our 2008 Annual Report exists solely in digital
     format, available on our website at www.FriendsOfTheSmokies.org. In order to further the impact of
     our contributors’ resources for the Park’s benefit, we decided to eliminate printing of this publication
     whenever possible. If you would like a paper copy of this report, you may print it from home on your
     own computer, or you may request a copy mailed to you from our office (800-845-5665). This decision
     also reflects our commitment to conserving natural resources in and around Great Smoky Mountains
     National Park!
         The images used throughout this publication are provided through the generosity, time, and talent
     of Samuel Hobbs of Goodspring, Tennessee, who is a faithful Friend of the Smokies. We extend our
     deepest thanks to Sam for providing us with a yearly cache of images that we can use whenever we
     choose to help further our fundraising efforts.

    2008 Highlights
                                                In 2008, preparations were in earnest for the year-long
                                           75th Anniversary celebration in 2009, with sponsors from
                                           both sides of the Smokies lining up to help make it a
                                           success. Fundraising efforts began for Friends of the
                                           Smokies’ Trails Forever program. The Aslan Foundation
                                           of Knoxville matched the $500,000 raised for Trails
                                           Forever by Friends’ supporters in 2008, establishing the
                                           first $1 million towards our goal of a $2 million
                                           endowment for trail maintenance and improvements.
                                           Meanwhile, Toyota contributed $375,000 in addition to
                                           the $625,000 they gave in 2007 to reach the $1 million
                                           mark for improving Park education programs.
                                                Along with these important milestones, Friends of the
                                           Smokies’ members and donors helped us to reach more
                                           than $24 million raised since 1993 to help support needs
                                           in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Additionally,
                                           Friends gave more than $1.2 million to the Park in 2008
                                           for educational programs, historic preservation projects,
                                           protection of natural resources, cultural resources, and
                                                                                      (continued on page 5)

wildlife, and backcountry improvements.
    Funding continued for long-standing Park programs and needs like the Parks As Classrooms
program, treatment for the Park’s eastern hemlock trees against the exotic invasive hemlock woolly
adelgid, as well as for the park-related organizations Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont,
Discover Life In America, and the Appalachian Bear Rescue Center.
    Well-established fundraising events like the Evergreen Ball, the Picnic in Pittman for the Park, and
the Friends Across the Mountains Telethon enjoyed great attendance and support, while newer events
like the Neighbors in the Foothills and Spring for the Smokies helped make new Friends in the
communities surrounding the Park. In 2008, Friends of the Smokies events raised more than $727,556
through the generosity of special event sponsors and patrons alike.
    Friends of the Smokies’ commitment to improving the Park’s trails and facilities deepened with the
debut of the Trails Forever work crew, as well as funding to refurbish the Little Cataloochee Trail, and
the Double Springs shelter on the Appalachian Trail in the Smokies.
    In other developments, the online social media revolution led to Friends of the Smokies creating
pages on Facebook and Twitter to communicate with a broad base of Park enthusiasts. More of our
communications went digital with a quarterly e-newsletter for members. Friends’ online presence
expanded with the debut of the Trails Forever website (www.SmokiesTrailsForever.org) where trail
projects and photos help to recruit volunteers for the program and encourage donations to make more
improvements possible.
    Thanks to the continued, generous, and faithful support of thousands of Friends of the Smokies,
2008 was a very good year in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

    Planning for the Park’s 75th Anniversary got a jump start from some
very generous sponsors who signed on early to help with the celebration,
and made their sponsorship contributions in 2008.

    2008 In Review

                                        Parks as Classrooms
         Toyota’s gifts from 2007 and 2008 totaling $1 million to update and enhance existing Parks as
     Classrooms curriculum set a record for educational fundraising for Great Smoky Mountains National
     Park. When the first gift was received by Friends of the Smokies in 2007, planning began immediately.
     Implementation followed, and the Park hired a new employee to develop new programs and help
     existing staff to move initiatives forward. These efforts allowed the park’s popular Parks as Classrooms
     program for Grades K-8 to greatly bolster the number of students served. Parks as Classrooms serves
     over 18,000 students in counties bordering the park in Tennessee and North Carolina. Additionally,
     Toyota’s gifts led to creative Junior Ranger programs launched in summer 2008 for young visitors (ages
     5-12) and their families in addition to a new reward program for children over twelve—and for adults!

                                  Fighting the Woolly Adelgid
         Since 2003, Friends of the Smokies has
     provided over $1 million in the ongoing battle
     against the hemlock woolly adelgid in Great
     Smoky Mountains National Park. Friends’
     2008 funding helped to expand conservation
     areas in Great Smoky Mountains National
     Park to treat more old-growth hemlocks. The
     Park continues to rely on chemical treatments,
     as well as various biological controls, to
     aggressively attack this exotic invasive
     predator threatening the eastern hemlocks.
     Through 2008, more than 120,000 trees had
     been treated by hand in Great Smoky
     Mountains National Park.

    In 2008, 90 volunteers gave 3,527 hours of their time to help Friends of the Smokies. Whether they
assisted with office management, the annual telethon, or other special events, our volunteers made a
tremendous contribution to both Friends of the Smokies and Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Using figures derived from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the non-profit group Independent Sector
estimates the value of volunteer time in 2008 at $20.25 per hour. Using that figure, our volunteers
contributed the equivalent of $71,421 to Friends of the Smokies last year. THANK YOU,
VOLUNTEERS! We couldn’t do it without you!

      the Park through the Volunteers-In-Parks (VIP) program in Federal Fiscal Year 2008 (October 2007 –

      provide information to visitors, and so much more. They include individuals, couples, families, Boy
      Scout troops, school groups, civic groups, and various other combinations. Friends of the Smokies
      thanks all the volunteers for their assistance in preserving and protecting the Smokies!
