Minor League Baseball has a new mascot, a new team: the Fayetteville Woodpeckers. The team, based in Fayetteville, North Carolina, has adopted the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker to adorn team caps, shirts and other items. Note the bat; that bird’s been busy.

Clinton, Tennessee — The Clinch River is now richer by a couple hundred extra trout. Other watersheds will soon share that wealth.
Four government agencies recently released rainbow, brook, brown and spotted trout into the tailwaters of the Clinch River near Knoxville.
Representatives from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), Tennessee Valley Authority, Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency took turns dumping nets of wriggling fish into the river — a symbolic gesture underscoring a fruitful partnership.
