Book Club Meeting

We will meet February 25th at Pomegranate Books at 10:30am to discuss Follow the Coastline by James E. Sykes. “In this book, the author describes some aspects of being a marine biologist that might be of most interest to the inquisitive reader. It does not deal with scientific matters, but describes some of the more amusing events in a career that extended over forty years, beginning with university training and extending through employment as a field biologist with the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service and ending with being a Laboratory Director with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). In the field studies of fisheries, the author undertook research assignments along the Atlantic Coast from Massachusetts through Florida, with intensive studies of fish populations in the Connecticut, Delaware, York, Mattaponi, Pamunkey, James Chickahominy, Roanoke, Neuse, Edisto, Ogeechee, and St. Johns Rivers. These studies ranged from determining estimates of sizes of spawning runs of shad and striped bass, to the design of fish passage facilities where the runs were blocked upstream spawning by existing or proposed dams.” Pomegranate Books (4418 Park Ave, Wilmington, NC 28403) is offering a 15% discount for CFRW Book Club members on our selected books. Call them at 910-452-1107 to order your copies.

Spring Cleaning Day

Join us March 4th, (after the first Saturday Seminar) at 10am for our annual spring cleanup around the CFRW office. If you can help, please bring gloves, rakes, shovels, weed eaters, shrub trimmers, etc.  If you have bags of mulch you want to donate, bring them and we will mix it with what we have and spread it around.  Also if have any native potted perennials you want to donate, we will find a place for them.
All the trash will be hauled to the landfill on the following Monday (the landfill closes at noon on Saturday), and the stuff that can be recycled will be placed in our recycle bin.
