Willow Pond Exploration at the NC Arboretum
April 30 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Join us on a guided discovery of The North Carolina Arboretum’s Willow Pond. We’ll learn more about the insects, amphibians and other critters that call this pond home while counting and photographing who we find. Photo observations will be added to the iNaturalist online biodiversity network and help scientists learn about these species. All ages welcome.
