Join us for a Cajun celebration on Sunday, October 2nd , where a group of Highlands residents are hosting “Highlands on the Half-Shell” to support the Highlands Biological Foundation. Feast on steamed oysters, gumbo, and jambalaya under a canopy of flame-colored leaves while enjoying the energetic tunes of Asheville’s Firecracker Jazz Band. The Highlands Biological Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has been providing critical support for the Biological Station and it’s three facets:  the Nature Center, Botanical Garden and Biological Laboratory since the Station’s founding in 1927.
