This final of this year's RiverLink Spring Salon Series will celebrate the natural wonders of springtime in the mountains. The Southern Appalachians are renowned for their biodiversity, featuring more distinct ecological niches than almost anywhere else in the U.S. From high peaks of conifer forests, rhododendron and grassy balds to lower elevation hardwood forests with streams, waterfalls, and rock outcrops, the variety of natural communities is astounding.
This event is from 3 - 5 p.m. at the RiverLink office at 170 Lyman Street in the River Arts District (map). The series is free but reservations are a must. Attendees can follow the link below to sign up.
April 24 will be devoted to discovering the many colorful birds found in our region with local birding expert Emilie Travis. There will also be a guided bird walk the Saturday after this event. Sign up by clicking here.
