Welcome to the Bham Now Nature Roundup March 3rd edition sponsored by the JSU Little River Canyon Center.
This week’s edition of the Nature Roundup features three major stories about “solution-based” conservation advocacy.
The first story is about the Coosa Riverkeeper FISH GUIDE. A project that took three years to develop, the new FISH GUIDE will help fishermen and the public know where fish advisories have been declared by the state public health department and how to keep your family safe from eating contaminated fish.
The second story is the Bham Now exclusive coverage of the Bibb County controlled burn at the Kathy Stiles Freeland Bibb County Preserve. It might seem counter intuitive, but fire is an essential tool used by natural resource groups and landowners to help bring back rare species and critical habitats.
The last solution-based project feature in this edition is the Green Resources Center for Alabama’s 2017 Green Report. This year’s report contains 26 pages of “green” projects and accomplishments. If you are looking for positive news on the environment, this report will brighten your day.
Lots of good info and proactive stories.
