The Nature Club: Southern Appalachia in the Anthropocene
Join Jason Love, Associate Director of the Highlands Biological Station of Western Carolina University, for a presentation on the impacts humans are having on one of the most diverse regions in the temperate world: the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Jason will discuss the impacts of invasive species, microplastics, legacy land use impacts, climate change on the mountains, and how the ancient Appalachians are resilient – to a point. Jason grew up in Roswell and graduated from Roswell High School; he has fond memories of visiting CNC as a child.
Attend in person at 7pm in the CNC Plaza Conference Room and bring a dish to share for the potluck. Make new friends and connections at Nature Club while learning all at the same time. Jason’s presentation will begin at 7:30pm.
Ages 16+. $10 general public / $5 CNC Members. Advanced Registration Required by Wednesday, October 25.
