On Friday, October 12, 2018, Freshwater Land Trust and U.S. Fish and Wildlife are hosting a day-long endangered species tour, highlighting six locations in Jefferson County where endangered species have been protected. The tour is free for registered participants.

Through this event, we hope to give conservation-minded landowners and stakeholders an opportunity to reconnect and learn more about the work being done to protect endemic aquatic life, especially the watercress, rush, and vermilion darters. The tour is also an excellent opportunity for new individuals and organizations to discover the incredible biodiversity located within Jefferson County’s urban communities.


Date/Time: Friday, October 12, 2018 from 9am until 4pm. You are free to attend the entire tour or to join us for part of the day.

Locations: Thomas Springs; Seven Springs at Faith Apostolic Church; Roebuck Springs at Don Hawkins Park; Highway 79; Penny (Tapawingo) Springs; Turkey Creek Nature Preserve.

Before the tour, we will share a final schedule – including specific meeting locations – with registered participants.
