The Cape Fear River; its tributaries, and communities it supports.

 

Andy Wood, is a fourth generation biologist and graduate of Texas A&M University where he studied wildlife management, natural resource conservation, and museum science. His career includes 12 years as Curator of Education for the North Carolina Aquariums, 11 years as a State Education Director for the National Audubon Society, and 28 years as a volunteer nature commentator for public radio station WHQR.

 


A collection of his commentaries were published in his first book, Backyard Carolina. Today, Andy directs COASTAL PLAIN CONSERVATION GROUP—a non-profit organization working to protect rare and imperiled habitats and the plants and wildlife they support.



Cape Fear River has its origins by way of the Haw River near Greensboro, NC, which joins the Deep River southwest of Raleigh at Mermaid Point, the confluence that begins the Cape Fear (formerly Clarendon) River. From Mermaid Point, Cape Fear River meanders through the coastal plain before discharging its Piedmont-muddied waters into the Atlantic Ocean at the rate of some 9,000 cubic feet per second. The largest river contained entirely within North Carolina’s boundary, Cape Fear River is also NC’s only major coastal river that discharges directly into the Great Ocean; all other rivers discharge into a sound or a bay.


Andy Wood, ecologist and conservation educator, will provide observations and insights he has garnered through more than three decades of exploring habitats within the Cape Fear eco-region.
