The fourth Endangered Species Mural, featuring the Watercress Darter, is complete in the historic East Lake neighborhood of Birmingham, Alabama! A collaboration between me and local artists Merrilee Challiss and Creighton Tynes, the mural is on the side of Lake Cottage Books, a community social center run by Kimberly Jeanty. It was a great pleasure to work in East Lake, and on the day of the mural’s completion a crew of scientists took us to visit one of the five limestone springs where the Darter is found- just ten blocks from the mural site, and sandwiched between a highway, a municipal tennis court, and a youth prison. On to the next!
