Nature Roundup February 17th edition – brought to you by JSU Little River Canyon Center

Birmingham Alabama

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

This week’s edition features articles about the Forever Wild Study that showed  a $5 return on every $1 invested in the program. There was also “good news” from Altamont School, with the installation of their solar array. And of course, more good news coming from UAB about their effort to establish charging stations for electric cars on campus.

Remember, don’t forget to bookmark the Bham Now Outdoor Events Calendar sponsored by JSU Little River Canyon Center.
