Welcome to the Bham Now Nature Roundup March 17th edition sponsored by the JSU Little River Canyon Center.

This week was Spring Break in Alabama, so as a result, there was not as much nature news.  The Spring does continue to grow.  On the horizon – the Birmingham Botanical Garden’s Spring Plant Sale, Canyon Spring Fest at Little River and 5% day at Whole Foods Market benefiting GASP!

Have a safe Spring Break!
