May 12, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The N.C. Cooperative Extension, Transylvania County Center and Conserving Carolina are offering a series of lectures, field trips, and service days to better acquaint the public with the French Broad River, considered one of the oldest rivers in the world, and give you ways to explore and act on its behalf.

The series is divided into 5 topics – March – June; each topic will have lecture (LEARN), field trip (EXPLORE), and service day (ACT) components. Lectures will be presented by local experts, authors, and scientists. Field trips will highlight the topics introduced by the speakers, and service days will act upon those topics.

The third part of our series: ACT Invertebrates of the FBR Stream Assessment Day!

 Mills River, exact location to be announced closer to the event Become a citizen scientist! We’ll be joining the Mills River Partnership for a macroinvertebrate stream assessment. This involves identifying aquatic insects that live in the stream and using those identifications to determine stream quality. Training will be provided.
