Get friendly with stream life with WATR

Written by 

“Saving our Streams” movie night and classroom bug exploration is set for Feb. 24 from 6:30-7:45 p.m. at the Grove Church outside of Bryson City sponsored by the Watershed Association of the Tuckasegee River.

The event will feature hands-on lessons about creatures that live in creeks, giving folks a chance to look for invertebrates in water samples collected just hours before. There will also be a short movie demonstrating how groups in other parts of the country work to safeguard their rivers and streams. WATR will share sign-up information for upcoming volunteer stream days this spring.

“As a community, we should also have a goal of developing more ‘citizen scientists’ who collect samples and learn the basic information of how watersheds operate so that they teem with life,” said Roger Clapp, WATR director.

The Grove Church is at 1127 Franklin Grove Road.

Additionally, WATR will have its annual meeting in the community room at the Ginger Lynn Welch Complex in Cherokee at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 28.
