Being a good steward of the waters

I realize that. They were introduced deliberately to the USA. There have been efforts to control them, but people love them.

We have more water to steward. :confused:

Reminds me of a PBS show on slime molds, and how they can move through mazes to preferred food sources. Pretty amazing.

@SkovandOfMitaze Look what I dug up for you: a short film about Pete Seeger’s Hudson River Clearwater project; He was quite the environmentalist and teacher.

Thanks. Watching it right now. I’ll definitely subscribe to their channel and watch them. Finished watching the Netflix Fantastic Fungi documentary earlier. It was good. Especially with their footage. I felt like at times it was a bit hyperbolic on claims though.

In the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater video it’s really inspiring to see all these kids snd teens involved. I am curious to see how some of them are doing now concerning environmentalism.

Is there a better thread for this?

Everything just really makes Rachel Carson’s thoughts more and more evident.

“But man is a part of nature, and his war against nature is inevitably a war against himself.”


This morning I was going through some of the posts by Alabama Water Watchers and seen a species mentioned I have not known before. It’s the “ Necturus alabamensis “ or commonly known as the Alabama/ Blackwater Riverdog and it’s a perennibranch salamander about 6-8 inches long.

States that as there are more and more Corbicula clams ( a genus of clams native to asia but invasive in USA) there are less and less of these salamanders.

Amphibians are pretty neat but definitely one of the species I know the least about. We have several salamander species in alabama near me. One I really want to see in the wild is the Siren reticulata which is a 2 foot long salamander in the lower alabama delta.
