Join Ruffner Mountain and Turkey Creek Nature Preserve for an exciting work day on the banks of Shades Creek!
Some of the most vital habitats and ecosystems for native plant and animal life in the area are located along Shades Creek and its watershed. Through creek bank recontouring and the planting of riparian native plant species, we will create a built-in safeguard against invasive species in the area that will also act as a natural nursery for native plants. Finally this new riparian (creek side) biome will serve as a much-needed educational environment for local public schools and universities.
So, come on out and help us beautify Irondale and Birmingham as we work to ensure a healthy future for all of our native flora and fauna and learn more about biodiversity and ecology in the process!
Additional details and full plant list forthcoming.
