Mobile Baykeeper hosted an apple snail roundup on Saturday, October 8 at Langan Park in Mobile, AL to remove this invasive species from the local ecoystem and prevent it from spreading further into Mobile Bay and the Mobile-Tensaw Delta.
The Mobile Kiwanis Club will host a forum Wednesday to raise awareness around building aboveground petroleum storage tanks in Mobile.
The meeting will be hosted by Mobile City councilman Levon Manzie and Casi Callaway, executive director of Mobile Baykeeper. The discussion will focus on the public safety concerns and the potential effects of building and housing the storage tanks.
"(The oil spill) was an environmental disaster and what stood out to me was how deeply and thoroughly this community recognized that an environmental disaster wrecked, destroyed our economy," said Casi Callaway, executive director of Mobile Baykeeper. "We are forgetting. That's where we're going to an 'or' instead of 'and.'"
