Have you visited the Greater Mobile-Tensaw River area? It’s more than 200,000 acres of rich, natural biodiversity. Scientists and scholars are very interested in this particular area of southwestern Alabama. As the eastern shore becomes more defined along Mobile Bay at Montrose, and the steep bluffs on the Red Hills become habitat for dozens of endemic plants and animals. In 1974 the Mobile-Tensaw River Bottomlands were designated a National Natural Landmark. A report from a partnership between the National Park Service’s Biological Resources Division and Southeast Regional Office, the University of South Alabama, and the University of Alabama and the Gulf Coast Cooperative Ecosystems Unit all know how the Greater Mobile-Tensaw River Area is a lovely place to see.
