Alabama Rivers: A Celebration & Challenge

This book is an outgrowth of my love of all things aquatic and more than 20 years directing a community-based water monitoring and education program called Alabama Water Watch. I started mucking around rivers, swamps, and streams as a kid, but my formal studies began while in college during the time of the first Earth Day in 1970. I remember wondering why many of them were degrading and seemingly unappreciated even as scientists learned more and more about their value. It occurred to me that good science alone is not enough to save the planet. The public must gain a basic understanding and appreciation of the natural world in order to put good science into action and make informed management and policy decisions.
