About Turkey Creek Nature Preserve

Turkey Creek Nature Preserve (TCNP) contains some of the most biologically diverse habitats in this region of Alabama. The waters of Turkey Creek are home to three endangered species of fish: the Vermilion Darter, the Watercress Darter, and the Rush Darter. The Vermilion Darter lives only in Turkey Creek and nowhere else in the world. Admission is free and all donations or other proceeds from the Festival benefit TCNP’s environmental education, youth outreach, and habitat preservation programs.
