Tellus Lecture: The Most Diverse River System

The Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville kicks off 2013 with another fascinating lecture.  (Who knew lectures could be fascinating?)

Ecologist Amos Tuck embarked on a 22-day, 200-mile river odyssey last year.  He set out from the headwaters of the Conasauga River in the North Georgia mountains and paddled down the Oostanaula and Coosa Rivers — all the way to Weiss Lake in Alabama.

Along the way, he witnessed inspiring sights: breathtaking sunsets, beautiful fish and fighting snakes.

Makes you wonder how snakes fight, doesn’t it?

Amos Tuck is the program coordinator for the Coosa River Basin Initiative.  During his trek, he documented the ecology and biodiversity of the river system.

On Friday, January 11, 2012 at 7 PM, Amos will share his photographs, videos and stories of North America’s most biologically unique river basin at Tellus.

Lectures are free for members and included in regular admission for non-members.

For members of Tellus, the evening will also include:

  • Planetarium preview of “Undiscovered Worlds” ($2 per ticket)
  • Observatory viewing 5 PM – 10 PM
