Riparian Restoration at Shades Creek Watershed

Shades Creek Restoration VIII.JPG

Some of the most vital habitats and ecosystems for native plant and animal life in the Birmingham metro area are located along Shades Creek and its watershed. Through creek bank recontouring and planting of riparian native plant species, a built-in safeguard against invasive species in the area acts as a natural nursery for native plants. Additionally, this new riparian biome will serve as an “outdoor classroom” for local public schools and universities.
