History and Ecology Resources

We hope you’ll spend time learning about the history and ecology of Tuscaloosa waterways. To that end, we’ve created a list of links that connect you to salient facts and good stories.

Also in these links you’ll find inspiration for lantern-building. For example, you might want to build a lantern of an indicator species, or a species of animal that indicates the living conditions of a certain environment. The Friends of Hurricane Creek knew that when the mayfly returned to the creek, living conditions had improved! See the Friends’ website for more ideas.
