Join Defenders of Wildlife staff and friends in Pisgah National Forest for a natural history excursion and guided walkabout to explore the wild waters of South Mills River, home to North America's largest salamander - the eastern hellbender. Bring a waterviewer if you have one, or join us on August 17 for a workshop at our Asheville office to make one! Featured guest presenter Jim Herrig, a veteran aquatic biologist with the USDA Forest Service for over thirty-six years, will kick off the workshop with a presentation about the rich array of wildlife living in our mountain waterways, why they matter, and how to be good stewards of this habitat. You won't want to miss it!Cost: Free - Space is limited. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for questions and to reserve your spot at either or both events.
