A fresh take on the region's salty affairs 

Introducing the Triangle Sound Series

By Jim Hawhee, APNEP
April 20, 2015

Daily Planet at the Nature Research Center

APNEP’s Raleigh offices are located in the Nature Research Center, part of the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences. Since its dedication in 2012, the building’s four-story stainless steel globe, known as the Daily Planet, has arguably become downtown Raleigh’s most iconic feature. The rest of the facility is no less impressive, teaching visitors “how we know” about the natural world.

Though we have long partnered with the museum’s world-class staff on projects, we’ve never fully taken advantage of their world-class facilities.

Therefore, we’re pleased to announce the Triangle Sound Series. Each month, from Earth Day in April to National Estuaries Week in September, APNEP will feature a speaker at the museum to explore the natural wonders of North Carolina’s sounds.

Hooking the region's best video clips 

UNC TV's Exploring North Carolina highlights the state's marshes and explains why this habitat can be considered the beginning of the "cafeteria line" in the way it provides food for large fish like albacore, tuna, drum, and Spanish mackerel. Our coastal economy is dependent on the marsh ecosystem because we wouldn't have big fish, shrimp or oysters if we didn't have salt marsh. In the film, Liz Baird describes the marsh behind our barrier islands: "If we were to look at it from a plane and look down, I think of it as being the frame around the picture of the estuary".
