What we’re about…

Welcome to the website for the Friends of Bolin Creek!

Join us on 9 am Saturday, October 11, “Learning about our Forest Communities,” that is trees. Rob Crook, Forester, Meeting place: 300 Waterside Drive, Carrboro. Read about all of the walks here.

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.

For more information or questions about how to help, contact friendsofbolincreek@gmail.com

Thanks, Friends of Bolin Creek

  1. Wed, 3/8
    I was running on the northwest side of the creek close to the big footbridge yesterday and heard a loud noise which I thought might have been coming from chain saws. I came upon 3 teenage boys riding motorized dirt bikes on some trails just off of the creek. I stopped one and asked what they were doing. He told me they were on private property, which ran all the way down to the creek. The noise was deafening. Is your group aware of this?
