FBR Series Part 3: LEARN! Invertebrates of the French Broad River Watershed

May 10, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 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: LEARN Invertebrates of the French Broad River Watershed!

Dr. Luke Etchison, Aquatic Wildlife Diversity Coordinator, NC Wildlife Resources Commission, will enlighten us on the state of the invertebrates of the French Broad River watershed. A specialist in mussels and crayfish, he will introduce us to these important, but lesser-known residents of our local waterways.

Registration is required and space is limited, reserve your spot here. Please contact Kim Gundler at [email protected] with any questions.
