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…
