Headwaters Talk: Shades Creek
Friends of Shades Creek & Cahaba River Society invite you to learn about the Shades Creek Watershed Plan
Shades Creek is beloved, beautiful, and has many challenges caused by urban runoff. The Nature Conservancy in Alabama (TNC) has taken leadership to develop a watershed plan to restore the Creek, and is inviting public participation in the planning.
Come learn about EPA’s 9-step watershed management planning process and the work that TNC is facilitating in Shades Creek. This stakeholder-driven process provides a mechanism for citizens of the Shades Creek Watershed to identify water quality issues within the watershed and propose restoration solutions – such as green infrastructure retrofit projects and bank restoration – that would then become eligible for ADEM’s Section 319 (h) grant funding and other local and national sources.
Presenting our program for the evening is Courtney Reich, AICP, CFM and Stormwater consultant with Goodwyn Mills Cawood (GMC).

Come early for refreshments and to meet our speaker, Courtney Reich.
