We're lucky at Ijams! We have several ponds, a lake, a creek and we border the Tennessee River, perfect for the TN Naturalist @ Ijams class called Tennessee Waters: Aquatic Systems.
As part of the class, Jen Roder and Stephen Lyn led the group on a search for aquatic life in the waterways at the nature center.
This is the second year Ijams has been a part of the now statewide series of Tennessee Naturalists classes. After 40 hours of instruction and 40 hours of volunteering, participants will become certified Tennessee naturalists.
