FBR Series Part 4: LEARN! Vertebrates of the French Broad River Watershed

June 1, 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 fourth part of our series: LEARN Vertebrates of the French Broad River Watershed!

Mike Knoerr, Wildlife Biologist with the Natural Resources Conservation Service, will present: “Hellbenders and Bog Turtles: Natural history and conservation of a giant salamander and a tiny turtle in Western North Carolina”. Mike will improve our understanding of the status of these rare reptiles and amphibians, and address restoration projects that improve habitat conditions for our hellbenders and bog turtles.

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