The public is invited to the winter meeting of the Lee County Historical Society Jan. 13 at 2:30 p.m. at the Trade Center Museum in Loachapoka.
The guest speaker will be Dr. Bill Deutsch, research fellow and emeritus in the Auburn University School of Fisheries, Aquaculture and Aquatic Sciences and co-founder of Alabama Water Watch, a community-based water monitoring program.
He will speak about one of Alabama’s most precious natural resources, its waters and its streams.
Deutsch has just completed a new book, “Alabama Rivers – A Celebration and Challenge.”
His book describes how Alabama rivers form, flow, and are full of life, and what we can do to develop a river ethic and keep rivers clean and healthy.
This presentation will kick off LCHS’s celebration of the Bicentennial of Alabama’s statehood.
