Tuesday, July 31, 2012 | 03:05am

NASHVILLE --- “Underground and Underwater: Tennessee’s Amazing Wealth of Submerged Caves” is the August topic for the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s Nature @ Noontime program. The program will be held from noon-1 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 2.

Donald “Skip” Kendrick will be the speaker. He began scuba diving in the 1990s and quickly took up cave diving in Florida’s Cave Country. Exploration of Tennessee’s caves has occupied the majority of his cave diving the past seven years during which dozens of previously unknown cave systems have been discovered, surveyed, and mapped.

He has been a professor of psychology at Middle Tennessee State University since 1983 and teaches statistics, research methods, and animal behavior. He has published research on comparative visual processes in various scientific journals.

Hosted by the Information and Education Division, Nature @ Noontime is held the first Thursday of each month. TWRA Nature @ Noontime presentations are about natural resource related topics and last about 30-45 minutes, allowing time for discussion during the allotted lunch hour. Contact Don King (615) 781-6502 or by e-mail: for more information.
