Through the creation of shipping channels, by way of the invasive species dragged into the river by commerce, and as the result of chemical and hazardous waste dumping in the river for more than a century, wildlife that come to call the river's habitat home, including bald eagles, peregrine falcons, lake sturgeon, beavers and whitefish, were largely chased away from it

Today's weather forecast calls for a high of 44 degrees with partly cloudy skies, some rain and potentially a snow shower mixed in, according to AccuWeather. Yes, a snow shower.
