Happy Pollinator Week! As a staff we decided our favorite pollinators are bats— pictured here is a Mexican long-tongued bat, or Choeronycteris mexicana. They’re found from the southwestern United States all the way down to northern South America, subsisting on a diet of nectar, pollen, and fruits, which they in turn pollinate. The coolest thing about them is their tongues, which can extend out 1/3 of the length of their bodies!! All pollinators, including bees, butterflies, birds, and small mammals are crucial to food security, and you can thank a pollinator for just about anything that ends up on your plate! You can protect these species by providing habitat for them, such as wildflower gardens, and making sure that any pesticides used on your property won’t harm helpful insects. #pollinatorweek #mexicanlongtonguedbat #pollinators #bats

SUMMER HAS OFFICIALLY BEGUN AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS… ’tis the season for backpacking, bugs, and beers! We’re inviting you to take part in our summer citizen science campaign where we try to determine which brand of beer is the most littered in our watershed. Join the Water Reporter community of citizen scientists actively monitoring watershed health in the Southeast, and make a difference in your community. It’s like Instagram, but for science. Just download the Water Reporter app on your smart phone, join the WaterWays group, and get outside! Throughout the summer we’ll be documenting the litter we see here in the Tennessee Valley Watershed, especially beer trash— whoever has the most posts by Labor Day weekend will win a REUSABLE growler filled with their choice of local beer! To learn more about how you can get started visit mywaterways.org/water-reporter/. ... See MoreSee Less
