Buxahatchee Creek Watershed

The Bux­a­hatchee Creek Water­shed is an impor­tant con­ser­va­tion focus area for the Fresh­wa­ter Land Trust. It is home to sub­stan­tial pop­u­la­tions of the rare cold­wa­ter darter as well as four plant species on Alabama’s Species Watch List and one threat­ened mus­sel species. The Bux­a­hatchee Creek Water­shed Restora­tion Project is work­ing with landown­ers to improve land man­age­ment prac­tices to help enhance water qual­ity in the creek.

The Fresh­wa­ter Land Trust is work­ing to con­tinue efforts to pre­serve sites along the Bux­a­hatchee Creek Water­shed. Please stay tuned for more information.

Exist­ing con­ser­va­tion efforts include the Bux­a­hatchee Creek Water­shed Restora­tion Project, which is coor­di­nated by the CAWACO RC & D Coun­cil and funded through the Alabama Depart­ment of Envi­ron­men­tal Man­age­ment.  The project is designed to work with landown­ers to improve land man­age­ment prac­tices to help enhance water qual­ity in the creek.
