Shades Creek

In 2003, the Freshwater Land Trust initiated efforts to restore a segment of Shades Creek near Morgan, Ala. The 40 acre tract had been significantly degraded by a previous landowner. The major impacts that had taken place on the site included illegal dredging of a canal across theneck of a meander bend and the establishment of a thick privet cover over the site following an intensive logging operation. Since then, we have worked to restore the area through privet removal, closing of the canal and the planting of native trees.
