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!
See the film, “Bolin Creek Unpaved: Saving Carrboro’s Last Urban Forest”
We have a natural treasure right here in town, and each citizen really should know what’s going on as we approach local elections this fall.
Please watch the film and then take a second to share this film with folks that you know here in the area. This is a topic that affects us all.
Synopsis of what film goers have expressed after seeing the film:
- surprise at what they didn’t know about what the Town of Carrboro has done in Bolin Creek Forest so far in regards to paving.
- surprise at how rare and unique Bolin Creek Forest is.
- surprise at what paving would really mean
Read about our efforts to conserve this special forest of over 400 acres. See map.
