General Meeting of High Peaks Birders


Friday, 6 pm, Yancey Public Library

      Join us and our special guest, environmental scientist and expert birder, Debbie Segal, for a talk about the Sweetwater Wetlands Park in Gainesville Florida. Debbie has worked in the field of wetlands ecology and soil science for over 25 years. She helped design the Sweetwater Wetlands park which is a state-of-the-art water quality enhancement system. The park is actually a waste water treatment system using gravity and sunlight to produce clean runoff and

in turn, an active wildlife area including many species of birds. 
      This talk promises to be very informative and can have a local impact. Debbie will offer us a natural and safe alternative to discharging polluted water into our streams and rivers. As the process unfolds, beautiful wildlife habitat is created. For more information email us at
