Blue Ridge Snorkel Trail Location Opening Next Week in Black Mountain
The Black Mountain Snorkel Trail opens at Veterans Park on July 6th
In this week's blog, we talk about the importance of rain gardens as a means of filtering storm runoff, so we can help keep our public waterways cleaner. We felt it was also fitting to mention the opening of a freshwater snorkel trail in our area! This 'trail' will encourage the public to explore the beauty of our native aquatic species - most of us don't think of snorkeling in our local streams or lakes, but there is a huge diversity of fascinating and colorful fish, crustaceans, aquatic insects and more to be discovered!
The Black Mountain Snorkel Trail opens at Veterans Park on July 6th.
On August 2nd, from 2-3:30pm you can bring your snorkel gear and swim with a biologist as they point out local fish and wildlife that call the Catawba River home at the Joseph McDowell Historical Catawba Greenway.
