"Treasures of the Big Black River"
SPEAKER: Scott Lemmons, Director Freshwater Programs, The Nature Conservancy, Jackson
Huge Sycamore in Big Black River Basin
TNC's Scott Lemmons will give us a fascinating look at a 350 mile river that is one of only a handful of major southern rivers that has never been dammed, altered, or been affected much by development.
Many Mississippians are only familiar with the Big Black River when it's listed in weather flooding advisories. But its history, habitat, and the wildlife who call it home make it a story that is very interesting. Some of the largest animals of each species found along the Big Black grow to their largest size in the Southeast.
