Lagniappe on the creek: One Mile Creeek -- Mobile's potenital crown jewel
In this special edition of "Lagniappe on the street," Lagniappe's Greenberry Taylor gets a tour of One Mile Creek from Tom Herder, Watershed Protection Coordinator for Mobile Bay National Estuary Program. Along the way, it became evident why Herder had urged Lagniappe to come see the creek in person: for every inch of beautiful natural habitat there was some type of garbage. On Oct. 22, Herder and the MBNEP will be hosting a volunteer event to clean up this area, and transform it into the crown jewel Mobile deserves.
A Redfish Tale
"A Redfish Tale" is an entertaining movie created to help students understand the complex science of hypoxia, eutrophication and non-point source pollution. The film uses two talking redfish to put big words into simple, everyday lingo.
Featuring redfish Jimbo and Thibodeaux, "the pair that cares," the film helps an astonished young man understand how the everyday activities of humans impact our waters, estuaries, habitats and eventually, our own lives. He also learns how to make a difference in his daily behavior and gains a better appreciation of the world around him.
The short film is made possible by a grant from the Gulf of Mexico Program. It is for use in schools and other educational organizations.
