Life of a Creek Program

Did you know that Alabama is in the top five most bio-diverse states in the United States? Alabama is 1st in the U.S. for number of freshwater fish, mussels, crayfish, and turtles!


The goals of the Life of a Stream program are to introduce and/or review concepts associated with stream ecology, freshwater biodiversity, conservation, and biological assessment.

Students will participate in fish seining and catching macro-invertebrates to assess the health and biodiversity of Turkey Creek.
