Welcome to the Bham Now Nature Roundup for the week of May 20.
Cahaba lilies and turtles. With the rain holding off this weekend, two of our favorite events, the Cahaba Lily Festival and the Urban Turtle Project went off without any problems on Saturday.
We particularly enjoyed following the Urban Turtle Project Facebook page where the participants held up the wide variety of turtles found in our local creeks and streams (They were measured, tagged, and released back into creeks).
Don’t forget the group will be holding a public meeting at Samford University Tuesday night to release their findings from this weekend (here are the details and the flyer below).
