> Explore Park, located along the Blue Ridge section of the Roanoke River,
> is sponsoring a "Biothon" during April 27-29th. The idea is to
> collect/site as many species (plants, insects, fish, herps, birds, etc.)
> as possible, collect pledges for each species collected, and use the money
> to help pay for medical expenses for an uninsured Virginia Tech Fisheries
> student who is currently be treated for leukemia. This will also be a
> tremendous opportunity for outreach, as the general public is invited.
> Several SFC members will be coordinating the fish sampling and fish
> outreach for the event. If your are interested in making a pledge, please
> visit the following website:
> It will be interesting to see what we come up with. The section of river
> that will be sampled represents one of the last riverine sections before
> the Roanoke becomes impounded by several large dams and has not been
> sampled much in the past. We will be sampling with hoop nets, backpack
> electrofishers, seines, and a shocking boat.
