Snorkeling with the Watauga Riverkeeper

July 27 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Valle Crucis Community Park, 2892 Broadstone Road
Valle Crucis, NC 28604 United States
+ Google Map
$10 – $20

Join MountainTrue’s Watauga Riverkeeper, Andy Hill, and take the plunge to explore the unique ecosystems of the Watauga River. Much like ocean reef snorkeling, river snorkeling allows you an unparalleled viewpoint to explore all the nooks and crannies of your local river. By peeking under the water, you can find yourself swimming alongside darting fish or face-to-face with the tiny insect larvae that feed them. After years of fishing and protecting this river, no one is more qualified to show you the best places to look for underwater marvels than Andy. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of a Hellbender.

Judith Glixon, a former Asheville resident and principle cellist with the Asheville Symphony and the Brevard Chamber Orchestra, returns to WNC to present a one-hour solo-cello concert about the urgency of climate change. The music of J. S. Bach (Unaccompanied Suites #1 & 3), Benjamin Britten (final movement of Suite for Cello, Op.72), Ravel and a recent composition by Daniel Crawford will take listeners through an abridged history of the human race (with an emphasis on Western civilization) from its beginning until today. Ticket sales for the concert will support the work that the Creation Care Alliance does to bring practical and hopeful solutions to our congregations and broader secular communities by engaging hearts and minds through inspiration, education, service, and advocacy. The Creation Care Alliance is a program of MountainTrue, WNC's champion for clean waters, resilient forests, and healthy communities.
