Description:

12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. Join us for Lunch & Learn: "Buggy is Better!"  at Alpha Chapel, 5393 Ham Horton Lane, Bethania, NC.

Bring a bag lunch!

When it comes to creeks and streams, the more types of bugs, the better off the stream. Aquatic critters have a story to tell and some of their adaptations will amaze you. Dave Penrose, a retired professor at N.C. State's Water Quality Group, will connect the dots in explaining why a thriving population of aquatic insects is important, not only for the health of local streams, but for the larger ecosystem.

An optional 30- minute creek walk with Dave will be offered immediately following the lecture. Bring boots so you can get in the creek and do the streamside shuffle with THE expert! 

Event Hosted by Forsyth County Cooperative Extension and Historic Bethania
