Salamander to be celebrated at Cradle of Forestry

Written by 

The Southern Appalachians have the world’s highest diversity of salamanders, and Salamander Saturday will introduce some of the key players, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 24 at the Cradle of Forestry in America, 25 miles south of Waynesville on U.S. 276. Salamander hunts throughout the day will give participants a chance to see the amphibious inhabitants of North Carolina’s forests and waters first-hand. At 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., John Groves, curator of amphibians and reptiles at North Carolina Zoological Park, will present his program, “Biology and Conservation of the Eastern Hellbender.” Rocky the hellbender will make an appearance, and a question-and-answer session will follow. Meanwhile, children will create their own salamander pictures to take home. 

$5 for ages 16 and up; youth free.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceIt’s not only a time capsule, but also a window into the future.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
