President’s Note – March 2023

The Little River Chapter was well represented, with over 20 members in attendance, at the GSMNP Fisheries Department annual volunteers meeting at the Twin Creeks Science Center.  Matt Kulp presented results of the ongoing acid deposition study as well as volunteer opportunities thru January 2024.  If you are interested in additional information about volunteering with the Fisheries Department, contact Richard Barnes at  While there, the Chapter presented the Fisheries Department with a check for $10,000, representing funds from the auction, volunteer contributions, and the Chapter. 

The Stream Barrier Survey Teams are back in full force now that the weather has improved and stream flows are more manageable.  The teams are on track to complete surveys of all Phase I sites by the end of April.  For further information on this project, contact Bernie Maloy at
