5/27 Orange Beach, AL – Mobile Baykeeper
Mobile Baykeeper advocates for the Mobile Bay Watershed and Coastal Alabama, protecting clean water, clean air, and healthy communities. The Mobile Bay Watershed encompasses 65% of the land area for the state of Alabama, including parts of Mississippi, Georgia, and Tennessee. It is a vast network of over 250 separate waterways, including rivers, bays, creeks, bayous, lakes, cutoffs, branches, and sloughs. It includes the Mobile-Tensaw Delta, one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems on the continent, known as “North America’s Amazon.” Mobile Bay opens into the Gulf of Mexico, whose sugar sand beaches attract thousands of tourists every year. A healthy watershed ensures a growing and vibrant community, a high quality of life, and a resilient economy. Mobile Baykeeper exists to protect it.
