When I was in the 4th grade, I took my first Alabama history class. Without fail, each day, the teacher outlined Alabama on the chalkboard–the rectangular box with the “high heels” that is Baldwin and Mobile counties. At the end of each class, she would wipe away that outline of the state.
Alabama holds some of the most beautiful geography and greatest biodiversity of any place on earth. We are lucky to live here! But according to some highly acclaimed scientists, if we don’t protect what we have, we could lose it.
