Michael Pollock has been wandering the woods, creeks, and fields of the Northeast Creek basin since he was a kid. After studying biology and anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, he has written about the natural areas of Durham and Chatham counties. A long-time contributor to the Parkwood Inside-Out, some of his recent pieces have appeared in Chatham County Line.
After retiring, Randal Haithcock began researching the local history of the Northeast Creek basin. As web site administrator (“admin”) for the northeastcreek.org, he has accumulated pictures of Northeast Creek and is responsible for keeping the natural resources inventory up-to-date and available as a sort of “bucket list” for people interested in the plants and animals in the Northeast Creek basin.
