Welcome to the website for the Friends of Bolin Creek!
Bolin Creek provides a home for an amazing diversity of creatures, including the rare four toed salamander, both in its waters and in the riparian buffer surrounding it. This stream also feeds into Jordan Lake, which is a water supply for over half a million people! Unfortunately, this wonderful stream is classified as impaired, meaning that it does not pass the standards set by our state for drinkable, fishable waters. In this site, you can learn about how to join us and make a difference to the creek!
You too can build a rain garden and help our creeks. We’ve trained a number of homeowners to build their own rain gardens. See this short video about the workshop and read more here. Read about the Chapel Hill High School Rain Garden here.
Thanks, Friends of Bolin Creek
