2012 DARTER DASH 5K & 1 MILE FUN RUN

The Fresh­wa­ter Land Trust Junior Board invites you to be a part of the 2nd Annual Darter Dash, a unique 5k race at the beau­ti­ful and his­toric­Turkey Creek Nature Pre­serve in Pin­son, Alabama. The 5k course will begin and end at Turkey Creek Falls. The race course is a paved road­way that fol­lows the beau­ti­ful creek, offer­ing incred­i­ble views and sub­tle ele­va­tion changes that allow for a chal­leng­ing, yet fun course.

This pre­serve con­tains some of the most bio­log­i­cally diverse habi­tats in this region of Alabama. The waters of Turkey Creek are home to three endan­gered species of fish: the Ver­mil­ion Darter (Etheostoma cher­mocki), the Water­cress Darter (Etheostoma nuchale), and the Rush Darter (Etheostoma phy­tophilum). The Ver­mil­ion Darter occurs only in Turkey Creek and nowhere else in the world.
