Water is Life: In the Great Outdoors
July 7, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Water is Life: In the Great Outdoors with Land Trust of North Alabama, Alabama State Parks and the Nature Conservancy in Alabama
Learn what a land trust is, and how important they are for protecting the land for people and wildlife from Marie Bostick (Land Trust of North Alabama). You’ll also hear about how important Alabama’s State Parks have been for people during COVID-19 from Lauren Muncher (Oak Mountain State Park). Then we’ll be joined by Mitch Reid (TNC) who will share some good news regarding passage of the Great American Outdoors Act which creates permanent funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund and what that means for Alabama.
ABOUT THE WATER IS LIFE SERIES
Each Tuesday, starting on Rivers of Alabama Day (April 14), 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, even in this new “normal”. 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!
