Next Lecture

June 22 Playing in Puddles: Meet the Aquatic Inhabitants of Connelly’s Run
Karen Powers: Radford University, Biology Department

We will examine the biodiversity & stream quality of Connelly’s Run, which runs through the park. After learning about the “how” and “why” of stream surveys, aquatic critters (“bioindicators”) collected earlier in the day from the stream will be available for hands-on sorting and easy-ID by participants willing to learn a little and get their hands wet!
