Gopher frogs and longleaf pines program topic for meeing on Thursday December 3rd at 7:15 PM
The longleaf pine ecosystem is one of the most imperiled and most fascinating ecosystems in North America. In North Carolina we are lucky to have some of the best remaining examples of the longleaf ecosystem. It is a forest shaped by fire. The high frequency, low intensity fires favor some unique species adapted to this forest, and in the absence of fire the forest becomes degraded and many of the iconic longleaf-associated species disappear. Jeff Marcus, the NC Longleaf Pine Restoration Director for The Nature Conservancy will talk about the role of fire in shaping the forest and will be presented looking through the eyes of a Carolina gopher frog undertaking its annual migration. Starting deep in an ancient stump hole, the frog senses it is time to breed and sets off through the longleaf forest, headed toward an unique, grassy wetland miles away. Along the way he will encounter many of the fascinating plants and critters that call this forest home.
Join us Thursday, December 3rd at the Tyvola Senior Center (2225 Tyvola Road.) at 7:15 PM. Refreshments and fellowship from 6:45 PM. Although we offer disposable cups, if you think of it beforehand, please consider bringing your own cup or mug to ease the burden on the environment. Ice will be provided. Birds and Beans Bird Friendly coffee will be available too!
