Alabama’s inland delta is the second largest in America behind the Mississippi. Two thirds of the state of Alabama and portions of Tennessee, Georgia, and Mississippi drain to a common point in the Mobile Delta. The State of Alabama ranks fifth, nationwide in biodiversity and richness of plant and animal species. Join 5 Rivers Resource Center Director Hank Burch as he shares his passion and insights about this unique ecosystem environment.

The 5 Rivers Delta Resource Center is located just off the Mobile causeway in Spanish Fort, Alabama midway between Mobile and Pensacola.
