Water is Life: Coastal Restoration with Mary Kate Brown of The Nature Conservancy
Protecting Alabama’s coastal ecosystems and communities to make them more resilient to storms and climate change is not an easy undertaking, but success is happening in Alabama.  Join us Tuesday as we talk with Mary Kate Brown of The Nature Conservancy in Alabama about their partnership with the City of Bayou La Batre, Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Mobile County, and National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to construct Lightning Point, a project that created over one mile of overlapping breakwater and jetties, 40 acres of marsh and upland habitat and 10,000 linear feet of tidal creeks resulting in diverse habitats for wildlife and lasting protection for an iconic local fishing community.

 

ABOUT THE WATER IS LIFE SERIES

Each Tuesday we invite you to join us from noon – 1 pm for this virtual get-together…with a purpose! We will be highlighting the role that water plays in our lives throughout Alabama and we will share how you can participate in the efforts to protect water. You’ll hear from our partners across the state, and leading experts in water protection. We’ll even have a few river history lessons thrown in! Click here to watch any past Water is Life Zoom Talk.
