On November 6th, biology faculty Joel Borden led a public outreach cruise along the Tensaw River in Baldwin County aboard Blakeley Historic Park’s Delta Explorer. This two-hour tour included natural, geologic, and cultural history of the river, biodiversity of the region in general and the Mobile-Tensaw Delta in particular, and the importance of the Delta’s ecological services (e.g. clean water/air, flood buffer, biological refuge, sustainable food resource, etc.). Joel has spent the last 18 years exploring and teaching (primary/secondary, college, and adult/continuing) students and enthusiasts about the hidden wonders of the 2nd largest river delta system in the US.  Basking alligator on banks of Tensaw River.
