MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THE ANNUAL CREEK CLEANUP!
On May 4th, the annual Hurricane Creek Cleanup will happen at Watson's Bend, but with a twist. We have been diligently working to clean up after the tornado of April 27th, 2011. Though most of the campground has been cleared of the large trees, the little stuff still needs to be cleared. The limbs will be chipped into mulch for use in the community and our trails.
This year we will be partnering with Mercedes Benz for the first time. We would like to thank them for being good neighbors over the years in the Hurricane Creek watershed.
Volunteers will receive a free BBQ lunch and lots of creek-based fun. For more information, contact the Hurricane Creekkeeper at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at 205-507-0867.
The painting is a portrait of Alabama Poet Laureate Helen Blackshear created by her daughter, Sue. It currently hangs in Sue's home along Bee Branch.
