Project invites public for day at stream

Written by 

Aquatic enthusiasts have the chance to tag along with the scientists for a lesson on stream sampling.

The Highlands Biological Station staff will be exploring streams, conducting aquatic sampling and learning about the state of the area’s streams from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Thursday, July 11. Participants can join in and help sample and identify macro-invertebrates in Caney Fork, a tributary to the Tuckasegee River, and learn how scientists use these macro-invertebrates for biomonitoring. 

Participants will meet at the Highlands Nature Center at 9:30 a.m. for carpooling or meet at East LaPorte Park in Jackson County at 10:15 a.m. The program is part of the Highlands Biological Foundation’s “Think About Thursdays” summer activity series. All ages are welcome, and the cost is $10 for members, $15 for non-members. Registration is requested.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
