Welcome to the Bham Now Nature Roundup for the week of January 27.
This past week, I sat down for lunch with the Nature Conservancy in Alabama‘s Executive Director Roger W. Mangham. When you get a chance, check out TNC’s work.
TNC is doing incredible work on Alabama’s coast, in Birmingham’s urban forests and communities and in places like the Paint Rock watershed in Northeast Alabama. I particularly like the work they do to restore habitat using fire. As your see in this video Bham Now shot last year, Roger is a true “hands on director.”
Keep up the good work The Nature Conservancy in Alabama!
