Tuesday, December 15 – Water is Life with Ben Raines, author of the new book, Saving America’s Amazon: The Threat to Our Nation’s Most Biodiverse River System.
In what he calls a “love letter and call to arms for Alabama’s rivers”, Ben explores the most biodiverse ecosystem in our nation, the Mobile-Tensaw Delta. We promise you’ll walk away from this discussion with great pride to be from Alabama with an even greater appreciation of Alabama’s natural spaces. and recognizing a more urgent need to protect them.
