The Chattahoochee Valley Land Trust is partnering with the Spencerivermont picture 2 streamr Environmental Center to answer some burning questions about the local ecology around the Chattahoochee. Why are there so many fires around the river,and why do oyster shells line the roads outside Phenix City?  Beginning this month, CVLT and other local partners are bringing in dynamic speakers who will answer these questions and give life to the fascinating local ecology of the Chattahoochee River.  Two of the lectures include field trips.
