Mississippi River Along The Riverbend

    Tri-County Regional Port District Expanding.......

 

Illinois State Representative Dan Beiser is touting a recently created regional business district.  On January 1, 2015, the Tri County Regional Port District became America's Central Port District. 

 

The port district now encompasses a larger portion of the Riverbend.  The port district had to contact several legislators to garner support for the expansion.  Beiser believes that the new port district will be beneficial to the region's economy.

 

Under the law, the Tri County Regional Port District is now America's Central Port District.  The port district boundaries now include Chouteau, Elsah, Godfrey, Quarry Township, and Wood River........

    Eagle Watching Is Going On Strong........

 

Over the past few months, eagle watching has lured thousands of people to the Riverbend region to check out the majestic birds nesting in the area.  The Alton Regional Convention and Visitor's Bureau says that there are plenty of eagles this year. 

 

Brett Stawar with the Convention and Visitor's Bureau says that eagle watchers have spotted eagle activity at the nest along the Berm Highway, otherwise known as the River Heritage Parkway.

 

Two Rivers Natural Wildlife Refuge, on the Great River Road near Brussels, is one of many hotspots for eagle watching along the rivers in the region.  Stawar added that there is a smartphone app to keep tabs on where the hotspots are........

US Army Corps of Engineers

     Eagle Watch Event at Carlyle Lake

CARLYLE LAKE – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in partnership with the Case-Halstead Library in Carlyle, IL will be hosting an Eagle Watch on Saturday, February 14, 2015, from 9 a.m. to 1p.m at the library. At 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., the World Bird Sanctuary will present “All About Eagles” and will bring a live bald eagle to demonstrate the majestic flight and nature of this beautiful bird. Everyone attending the event will have the opportunity to listen to a story about bald eagles, make crafts, and observe replicas of a bald eagle skull, egg, talons and feathers to get a better understanding of the bird. Participants can also pick up a map at the library during the event and drive to various viewing locations at the lake. Park Rangers will be at these locations with spotting scopes to assist and answer questions. Everyone is encouraged to bring binoculars and dress accordingly for the weather.

On January 9th and 10th Carlyle Lake staff members performed the annual “Midwinter Bald Eagle Survey” at Carlyle Lake. During the survey, 58 mature and 42 immature eagles were identified and recorded in four counties in the Carlyle Lake area. With 83 miles of shoreline, Carlyle Lake offers excellent habitat for eagles and has all the resources available for their survival. The number of eagles visiting Carlyle Lake in past years has increased and many active nests have been located. The population of Bald Eagles in Illinois has steadily increased over the past several years due to federal laws and conservation efforts that have been made to save these magnificent birds of prey.

For additional information on this presentation or on bald eagles please contact the Carlyle Lake Project Office at (618) 594-2484 or email at carlylelake@usace.army.mil.

 Inland Waterways

     Study Looks At Inland Waterway Investment Impact........

 

The National Waterways Foundation has commissioned and released a two year study that looks at the national economic returns on investments to the U.S. inland waterways, as well as the benefits and need for an accelerated waterways system improvement program that will create, and sustain American jobs.

 

The study, titled "Inland Navigation in the United States: An Evaluation of Economic Impacts and the Potential Effects of Infrastructure Investment" was conducted by the University of Tennessee and the University of Kentucky. 

 

The research looked at the inland navigation system, as it currently exists and is funded, and as the inland waterway system may be through renewed investment in infrastructure........

Upper Missouri River Basin  

    Research Finds Cause Of Pallid Sturgeon Decline........

 

The family tree of the pallid sturgeon goes back tens of millions of years, however, it has been only decades since biologists documented any of the prehistoric fish producing offspring that survives to adulthood in the Upper Missouri River Basin.

 

Fisheries biologists with the Montana State University, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the U.S. Geological Survey recently documented the biological mechanism that caused the decline of the endangered pallid sturgeon.

 

According to a paper published in the journal Fisheries, scientists demonstrate that oxygen-depleted dead zones between the dams along the Upper Missouri River are linked to the failure of the sturgeon embryos surviving until adulthood........

Mississippi River Near Cahokia, Illinois

    Did Earthquakes Doom Mississippian Society?

 

Archaeologists have spent years trying to find an answer to the mystery of what caused the disappearance of the ancient American Indian societies that had flourished for a thousand years along the Mississippi River in southwestern Illinois.

 

Sometime around 1400 AD, these American Indian societies suddenly disappeared, including the large city that once occupied the site of the Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site.

 

Archaeologist Gregory Vogel came up with a theory, which he revealed during a lecture on Sunday, at the Cahokia historic site.   Vogel says that it is likely a string of disasters, including drought and war plagued the region.  He added that there is evidence of a massive earthquake, and powerful aftershocks that made the region uninhabitable........
