Upcoming Rivers of Alabama Course

Travel down rivers through time to encounter the rich human history and natural wonders that have defined Alabama. Along the way, we will celebrate an array of magnificent rivers filled with unique plants and animals, shaped over the ages by a remarkably diverse geology. Accept the challenge to restore and protect our rivers for their economic, cultural, and ecological benefits, but most of all because it is the right thing to do.

Join Dr. Bill Deutsch and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Auburn University as they journey through Rivers of Alabama, a 7-week Zoom course that will allow participants to explore the wonders and mysteries of Alabama’s Rivers.

2020 Alabama Fish Advisories

What are the Alabama Fish Consumption Advisories?
