A wonderful example of Alabama’s biodiversity serves as a great educational tool for area students. We loved to see this photo, given to us by Samford Biology professor and Freshwater Land Trust Board Member Dr. Mike Howell. “Dr. Mike” recently met with Miles College Biology Professor Bernice Coar Cobb and her class to discuss the history of the endangered watercress darter and its discovery at Seven Springs at Faith Apostolic Church in Powderly. Faith Apostolic’s “Modern Day Noah,” Bishop Heron Johnson, finished with a talk on our role as stewards of the earth and our responsibility to take care of endangered species. This site is not only a model for endangered species protection, but it is also a great example of what can happen when a multitude of partners join together to protect a fragile fish. Thank you, Miles College, Dr. Cobb, Dr. Mike, and Faith Apostolic Church!
