The January Split the Plate Partner – Friends of Hurricane Creek

Friends of Hurricane Creek
The UUCT January 2017 Split-the-Plate Partner

Rivers and streams are protected throughout the country by a network of “Waterkeepers.” The Friends of Hurricane Creek, with John Wathen as the Hurricane Creekkeeper, is Tuscaloosa’s own group. The mission of the Friends of Hurricane Creek is to restore and maintain the creek’s ecosystem through education, partnerships, outreach, and advocacy.
The Friends of Hurricane Creek Board of Directors has assembled a diverse list of allies and partners who work to protect Hurricane Creek and its watershed from pollution and strive to hold accountable polluting corporations, government agencies, and elected officials. A number of special events are held throughout the year, including the Hurricane Creek cleanup, which takes place in the early spring. It is a great way to get involved and help Hurricane Creek.
