Join Conserving Carolina and Walnut Creek Preserve on Saturday, November 3rd when Dr. Paul Bartels presents, "The Microscopic World of Water Bears: Hidden Treasures," at the Anne Elizabeth Suratt Nature Center at Walnut Creek Preserve at 10:30 a.m. This is a free program, open to the public. Dr. Bartels will give an introduction to the charismatic microfauna of moss, lichens, soil, and streams. We will cover the biology of tardigrades (water bears), methods of collecting and observing live microscopic animals, and the research on tardigrades (first in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, now in tropical oceans worldwide) that we have been working on at Warren Wilson College for the past 17 years. Dr. Bartels is a biophilist. E.O. Wilson coined the term “biophilia” to capture the innate need for nature that is a basic part of being human.
