In October 2018, Freshwater Land Trust and U.S. Fish and Wildlife hosted an all-day endangered species tour, highlighting six locations in Alabama's Jefferson County where endangered species have been protected.

Through this event, we hoped to give conservation-minded stakeholders an opportunity to connect and learn more about the work being done to protect endemic aquatic life, especially the watercress, rush, and vermilion darters.
We were thrilled to have over thirty attendees and look forward to hosting a similar tour in 2019.
