Hurricane Creek Watershed

In 2009, a 250-acre nature pre­serve was estab­lished by Tuscaloosa County along Hur­ri­cane Creek, pro­vid­ing an excel­lent anchor for fur­ther land con­ser­va­tion and pub­lic recre­ation. The FWLT is work­ing to fur­ther those efforts by work­ing to pre­serve future sites within this impor­tant water­shed. The Hur­ri­cane Creek Water­shed, a des­ti­na­tion for wild­flower enthu­si­asts, is extremely impor­tant because it has incred­i­ble plant diver­sity noted by famed Alabama botanist, Roland Harper, in the early 1900s. It also con­tains four rare plant species on Alabama’s Species Watch List.
