1. Alabama's Aquatic Biodiversity Marker
Inscription. Alabama is one of the states with the most biodiversity.

In fact, Alabama ranks #1 when it comes to the number of freshwater critters! Biodiversity refers to the total number of different plant and animal species.

Every organism from microscopic bacteria to the great blue whale is unique and essential to the health of our environment and human life.

Conserving biodiversity:
• Helps us discover new medicines
• Provides our food
• Adds jobs and promotes nature-focused tourism

Protecting and restoring habitat is the best way to conserve biodiversity.

Shortly thereafter, in 1975, the Cullman County Commission restored the site with the help of concerned citizens as part of the American Bicentennial Project, embellishing the grounds with hiking trails, a picnic area, and two period structures built to accent the historical nature of the bridge: a Dogtrot log cabin and a working grist mill.
