Welcome to the Bham Now Nature Roundup “Searching for Bigfoot” May 4th edition. Alabama made national news last week when the The Daily Show ran a series of comedy segments about the Yellowhammer State.
Of course, our favorite episode featured Alabama native, comedian Roy Wood, Jr.’s venture into the great outdoors to learn about nature and search for…. Bigfoot.
Check it out.
Back to real news – It was another eventful week concerning nature in Alabama with stories about Forever Wild, Woodlawn’s Urban Farm, ADEM, Ruffner Mountain and Birmingham’s recent progress in its efforts to reduce air pollution.
Enjoy the search for Bigfoot and this week’s upcoming events. Seems there is never a dull moment in Alabama.
