Shoal Creek Watershed

The Shoal Creek Water­shed includes impor­tant head­wa­ters that are bio­log­i­cal “hotspots,” in addi­tion to pro­vid­ing clean water that sup­ports the habi­tat of sev­eral rare fish and mus­sel species fur­ther down­stream in the Lit­tle Cahaba River. The Fresh­wa­ter Land Trust, the City of Mon­te­vallo and the Uni­ver­sity of Mon­te­vallo are work­ing to pro­tect these head­wa­ters as the area’s pop­u­la­tion grows, and to pro­vide parks and green­ways for pub­lic recre­ation and envi­ron­men­tal education.

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