the field activities and collections of the Natural Resources team. Our namesake, Dr. James F. Matthews, Professor Emeritus of Biology at UNC Charlotte, continues to contribute to knowledge of the natural history of the Piedmont as regular volunteer at CBS.
We’re available to answer questions about plant and animal life in the Piedmont of North and South Carolina. Also, if you have plants or animals that you would like to have identified, please contact us. We’d love to have you bring them in! Please be sure to make an appointment as we also do fieldwork and may not always be in to assist you. For appointments, please send us an email at Reedy.Creek@mecklenburgcountync.gov or call (704) 432-6458. Next time you’re at Reedy Creek, stop in to say hello – we also welcome questions without appointments, as long as we’re in!
