Department of Biology collaborates with Bertie County Government on their “Tall Glass of Water” Project

  • Tyler Binnicker, senior biology major from Plymouth, NC collects water data in Bertie County as a part of his capstone project.

The Department of Biology is proud to be collaborating with Bertie County Government on their “Tall Glass of Water” (TGOW) Project.  

The Department will receive up to 3 years of funding to conduct water quality and ecological monitoring associated with restoration of wetland and native meadow habitats on a 147-acre site at the mouth of the Chowan River. Chowan students will directly contribute to the effort through capstone projects, class activities, and work-study.

The TGOW Project will leverage natural resources in the area, such as the Salmon Creek State Natural Area, as well as cultural resources to promote sustainable ecotourism and environmental education. Funding for Chowan Biology’s work on the TGOW Project is made possible through Bertie County Government’s recent Environmental Enhancement Grant from the State of North Carolina.
