Dr. Lee Goff is an early pioneer in the field of forensic entomology, where he uses the details of a bug's life to solve murders and other crimes. He's a consultant to the FBI, other law enforcement agencies and also to the CSI television shows where work like his is portrayed. We'll talk about how insects can solve mysteries and crimes.

Part Two: Rain Gardening in the South Pollution comes in many forms, and one of those can be gardens. Water-wise gardeners who want to be conscious of both excess use of water and water run-off (which causes pollution) will be happy to know that there's a way to be good to the environment and have a pretty garden - rain gardening. We'll meet NCSU horticulturalist and author Anne Spafford who will explain how rain gardens work in dry spells and rainy seasons, which makes them perfect for our climate here in the Charlotte Region.
