Welcome to the Bham Now Nature Roundup for the week of February 2, 2019.
This winter, the Alabama Rivers Alliance has been showing Southern Exposure Films throughout the state at conservation meetings and film festivals. We thought it would be appropriate to kick off the first Nature Round-up of 2019 with a 12 minute video about the need for a state water plan.
Despite, record rainfall in 2018, we are only 2 years removed from one of the worst droughts in reason memory back in the fall of 2016. Whether it is too much rain or not enough, lack of water planning endangers not only the environment, but also our economy. Alabama needs a water plan.
