Program to showcase forest researchWritten by Admin
The experimental national forest service site, Coweeta Hydrologic Lab, will be the subject of the next League of Women Voters in Macon County on Thursday, Nov. 10. The research center located in Macon County was established in 1934 to study how forests affect the streams that flow through them and has done some of the most influential research on forest watersheds in the world.
Information will be presented on the history of Coweeta and its major scientific contributions, including current projects on the Hemlock wooly adelgid, land use and water quality, and the Southern Global Climate Change Program. Coweeta also reaches out to apply its research locally in projects specific to its home territory.
The meeting will be held at Tartan Hall in Franklin starting at 12:15 p.m.
