Big and Little Canoe Creek Watershed

The Big and Little Canoe Creek Watershed is a priority area of the work of the Freshwater Land Trust and is incredibly significant for many reasons. Big and Little Canoe Creeks are home to 54 known species of fish and 23 rare and imperiled plants and animals documented throughout the watershed. The watershed is also home to a species of mussel (Canoe Creek clubshell) that is entirely new to science and was recently discovered. It also has a key population of the tri-spot darter, a rare fish once thought to be extinct in Alabama.

The Fresh­wa­ter Land Trust is work­ing to con­tinue efforts to pre­serve sites along the Big and Little Canoe Creek Watershed. Please stay tuned for more information…
