The monthly AUWRC Water Webinar series continues with Multi-Faceted “Mudbugs”: How Ecology, Hydrogeology, and Geomorphology Influence Burrowing Crayfish Biodiversity in Alabama’s Black Belt Prairie featuring Rebecca Bearden. Bearden is a biologist with the Geological Survey of Alabama researching restoration opportunities for watersheds harboring aquatic species of concern. She also manages social media relations for the Alabama Rivers and Streams Network, and is currently an outdoors columnist for Southeast Farm Press. She works part-time on my family’s cattle ranch in Maplesville, Alabama. Bearden graduated from Auburn University in 2007 with B.S. degrees in Agricultural Communications and Wildlife Sciences.
