The Feast Like a Hellbender event was a huge success. We had over 100 participants in attendance eager to learn about hellbenders, support hellbender conservation, and eat some crawfish! We would like to thank the Harrison County Extension office for opening up their facility and The Nature Conservancy, Crawford County Extension, and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources for promoting our event.
Purdue University students had many displays on hand for teachers, farmers, and anglers. The Purdue research team was also available to discuss the research being conducted in Indiana and beyond. For more photos of the event, follow us on Help the Hellbender Facebook.
