Up Close

The pictures below were taken with one the new Ipads and microscopes that were bought for the Park Rangers using money donated by the Saluda Shoals Park Foundation.  The equipment will be used for education programs when school groups visit the park for a Park Ranger led program.  The mosquito and scorpion in the photos were collected and cataloged by Saluda Shoals Park resident scientist Dr. Lou Rigley.  The mosquito was collected in the park during Dr. Rigley’s mosquito study but the scorpion was collected elsewhere and saved for research purposes.  Dr. Rigley has completed his mosquito study using the park as his primary research facility and has plans to conduct other studies within the park.  For more information research projects in the park be sure to visit our website at
