Have you heard about the Swallow Hole that popped up in our local Wilson's Creek?

It is an interesting geo-feature that has caused quite a stir (of water within the creek) and of intrigue within the community! As water continues to rush into this seeming abyss, come to this FREE and PUBLIC informational presentation.

Water quality author and educator, Loring Bullard, will showcase photo and video progression of the growth of this Swallow Hole over the last year - while informing on our unique, local karst geography and hydrology. JRBP’s Executive Director, Tiffany Frey will provide information on the current Wilson’s Creek Implementation Project 319 grant - including volunteer opportunities later in 2018 that community members can get involved with. 

Doors open at 6:00pm. Please arrive early to ensure a seat in the Nature Center's Auditorium (seats 140 people), no reservations required.
