FBR Series Part 4: ACT! Survey for Hellbenders at a Habitat Restoration Site

June 3, 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 fourth part of our series: ACT  Survey for Hellbenders at a Habitat Restoration Site!

Learn how Defenders of Wildlife helps restore habitat for hellbenders and participate in a survey for hellbenders at a habitat restoration site on the North Fork of Mills River, a tributary of the French Broad River.

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