Sylva-- On Thursday, November 30 at 6 PM, the Jackson County Public Library is hosting Lori Williams of NC Wildlife. This program is in the Community Room and is free of charge.

In this talk, intended for an adult audience, Lori Williams from NC Wildlife Resources Commission (NCWRC) will introduce the audience to one of our most unique Appalachian treasures, the Eastern Hellbender.  Topics discussed will include Hellbender life history, ecology, habitat use, threats, and conservation efforts NCWRC and our project partners are doing in North Carolina to save the species.  She will wrap up the talk by showing some cool underwater video clips of these fascinating creatures and introducing the audience to our resident species ambassador, Rocky the Hellbender!
