Pic of the Valley #7

Picture 4467

This “Pic of the Valley” is an example of the abundance and diversity of wildlife that is thriving throughout the Tennessee and Cumberland River Valleys. The availability of natural resources, not limited to the waters of our region’s lakes, streams and rivers, provide an environment that contributes to successful habitats for countless species of birds, fish and land dwelling animals. Rarely seen together, these two jakes and a doe share a wooded area near the shores of the Tennessee River in north Alabama that is home to a variety of life not seen in other regions of the United States. This “Pic of the Valley” serves as an example of the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers’ contributions to navigation, recreation and the environment that enhance the quality of life for all who reside in or visit this exceptionally diverse region.
