Hidden Rivers of Southern Appalachia
July 16, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The Transylvania County Library and Transylvania Natural Resources Council will present Hidden Rivers of Southern Appalachia on Thursday, July 16, at 6pm in the Rogow Room at the library. Lorie Stroup, zone fisheries biologist with the Pisgah National Forest, will give an introduction to the project and film. Ten years in the making, Hidden Rivers is Freshwaters Illustrated’s newest feature film that explores the rivers and streams of the Southern Appalachian region, North American’s most biologically rich waters. The one-hour film reveals both the beauty and vulnerability of aquatic life and follows the work of conservation biologists and explorers throughout the region. Hidden Rivers was created to inspire a deeper discussion about biodiversity and conservation needs in river ecosystems. The film highlights some of the ways people are finding to protect our valuable waterways. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
