We are currently in the process of getting all our ducks in line and still in a growing phase. We are based in Cookeville, Tennessee and usually meet in the Pennebaker building on the Tennessee Technological University campus. If you have any questions feel free to email us. Our next scheduled meeting will be September 8, 2004 at 8:00pm. Some of our upcoming events are:
All Taxonomic Inventory with Tennessee State Parks to include Burgess Falls and Edgar Evans. We're also in the middle of a inventory on the islands at Tim's Ford State Park.
On September 25, 2004 there will be "Haunting in the Hills", which is a storytelling festival, to be held at Big South Fork National Park. We may also be camping in the park that Saturday night.
We are currently taking nominations for officers through Friday, September 10. Voting will occur by email September 13-17, 2004. The new officers will be posted on the web page following the elections.
Emily Bizwell is beginning a research project on the endangered Nashville Crayfish and is looking for a volunteer or two to help. Anyone interested can contact her at her email.
We're looking forward to having an exciting year. We're working on some hiking trips and possibly a few field days. If you are interested in being involved with chapter activities can contact Kris Bolin. If you are interested in helping to maintain the web page please feel free to contact Steven Hewett.
