Hi Fishy Crew & “Fellow Mussel Heads”!
As you may be aware, the Milburnie Dam on the Neuse River is being removed, so Three Oaks Engineering is organizing efforts to salvage mussels in this area and move them further into the channel.
NCSU SFS will be forming a volunteer group to help with the second mussel salvage effort the week of Oct 9. The approach will involve paddling (canoe, kayak) the impounded section and collecting mussels that become stranded along the banks, and moving them further into the water.
Please contact Bobby Cope (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are able to join or are interested in volunteering, and if you have a vessel that you can use (kayak, canoe, raft, etc.). We will be sending a solid date once we hear from the organizers.
Hi Fishy Crew!
Welcome back and hope everyone had a fantastic and productive summer!
Join us for our first SFS Meeting Tues, Sept 5th in the DCL lobby!
We will have pizza at 5:30pm followed by a fun meet-and-greet meeting at 6pm!
Invite some new friends from all different departments and lets “fish-off” to a great Fall semester!
We are in need of some fabulous graduate students that would like to participate in this FINtastic outreach program within our local schools.
In an hour we ask that you give a short presentation (all ready made) and help kids dissect their very own fish. The kids were so inspired to be a scientist and they had so much fun getting their hands dirty.
The fish are all ready here and waiting for you to grab the day of or night before in a cooler.
Want to do this but nervous you don’t know enough about fish?
No worries. Its super basic external anatomy and just the body cavity for internal. A quick review of the ppt and maybe a google search and you should be fine. Most students are just excited to have science in the classroom.
Any further inquiries and the sign up sheet please email one of the sfs officers (Emilee Briggs, Kayelyn Simmons, or Tiffany Penland). Shad in the Classroom
