FRESHWATER LAND TRUST'S RELATION TO CREEK

This information was retrieved from the Freshwater Land Trust, an organization which held the property that was deeded to PARA in the creation of Hurricane Creek Park. According to the history available on their website:

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.
