On the Half Shell

by Charlotte Muir


Oysters are pitching in to keep the Highlands Biological Foundation’s mission going far into the future – join them for Highlands on the Half-Shell, Sunday, October 6, at Highlands Nature Center.

Join the Highlands Biological Foundation for a Cajun celebration on Sunday, October 6, – Highlands on the Half-Shell in the meadow behind the Nature Center.

This annual fall event supports the Highlands Biological Foundation. The bayou comes to the mountains with a feast of oysters, gumbo, and other Louisiana delicacies under the canopy of Highlands’ autumn flame-colored leaves.

Whether there’s rain or shine, Highlands on the Half-Shell is guaranteed to be a good time. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

The fun starts at 4:00 P.M. and will last until dark. Come dressed in your favorite “Cajun casual.” Tickets are $100 for members and $120 for non-members. To purchase tickets, visit highlandsbiological.org. or call (828) 526-2221.

The Highlands Biological Foundation is a non-profit organization that has been providing support for the Biological Station and it’s three facets:  the Nature Center, Botanical Garden and Biological Laboratory.

Thanks to the generosity of members and community residents, admission to the Nature Center and Botanical Garden are free. Come support the mission of the Highlands Biological Station: “To foster research and education focused on the rich natural heritage of the southern Appalachian mountains.”

Knowing that your support is directly contributing to conservation efforts, research and education to better understand the exceptional organisms in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, you’ll find that oysters and gumbo have never tasted so good.
