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.
Fourche Creek recreation was the focus of Little Rock's 2016 Sustainability Summit. Join Mayor Mark Stodola on a float along Fourche and meet some of the Friends of Fourche Creek.
