Fourche Creek

Protecting important urban wetlands

For nearly a decade, Audubon Arkansas has spearheaded a growing effort to protect the Fourche Creek Watershed, arguably the most important urban watershed in the state of Arkansas. The watershed drains and filters runoff from Little Rock, Arkansas’s capital.

Despite years of abuse and neglect, Fourche Creek continues to support a highly diverse population of flora and fauna and an 1,800 acre core bottomland region that still maintains its wetland functions and character.
