Friends of Shades Creek – April Monthly Meeting – Social Distancing Edition
Tonight should be our regular April meeting at the library. We are going to miss seeing you all! We are not meeting in person, but are giving you a link to a virtual tour of the Cahaba River, of which Shades Creek is the largest tributary. On this video you can see the sights and sounds of one of the most bio-diverse rivers in America. Taking care of Shades Creek and keeping it clean and beautiful, helps take care of the Cahaba River. Click on the link below for a short (13 minute) video called “The Cahaba River” by Hunter Nichols.
Alabama residents of all walks of life share their memories and connection to the Cahaba River in this film by Hunter Nichols. Smithsonian Magazine has heralded the Cahaba as one of the most biologically rich rivers in the nation. As the river gains fame, residents wonder if the river will maintain this status. Many threats face the river and its unique aquatic life.
