Water is Life: Rivers of Alabama Day – Telling Your Story
April 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Rivers of Alabama Day: Telling Your Story with Glenny Brock (amazing writer and professor), Dr. Bill Deutsch (retired, Auburn University and Alabama Water Watch) and Cleo Stubbs (WELP, Wetlands Environmental Learning Projects).
Join us Tuesday for our one year anniversary of the Water is Life Zoom Talks! It is also Rivers of Alabama Day, the day our state legislature designated to celebrate our rivers and we want them to hear from us on this special day. Water is Life: Telling Your Story features three Alabama treasures: Glenny Brock (Birmingham-Southern College), Dr. Bill Deutsch (retired Auburn University and author of Alabama’s Rivers: Celebrations and Challenges), and Cleo Stubbs (Wetlands Environmental Learning Project) as we write our personal letters to our elected officials about the need to prioritize protecting rivers. Come with pen and paper as Glenny guides us through how to tap into and tell our own personal stories!
