The Flint River Conservation Association is a group of concerned residents, landowners and recreational users who are working to conserve and improve the water quality, natural resources, and scenic beauty of Madison County's Flint River Watershed.
The Flint River Conservation Association envisions a healthy, clean Flint River. We envision a river with a relatively natural flow regime -- in other words, human activities do not reduce flows to an unnatural trickle, or cause unnaturally severe and frequent flooding. We envision a scenic river that provides opportunities for fishing, walking, canoeing and other recreational activities. We envision an ecologically healthy, biologically diverse Flint River. We envision a river lined with natural, forested lands (greenways and riparian buffers), and the conservation of the River's tributaries, springs, caves, and other resources.
We have established a Watershed Education Center at the Hays Nature Preserve and the Goldsmith-Schiffman Wildlife Sanctuary, a 1000 acre bottomland forest complex that is idea for watershed and wetland education. It is owned and run by the City of Huntsville. Susan Weber is the on-site ecologist and director. Hays Nature Preserve and Goldsmith-Schiffman Wildlife Sanctuary phone is 256-427-5116.
FRCA continues to have meetings every other month, a clean up on the River each year, a river festival, and a number of workshops on prevention of non-point source pollution. We continue to acquire grants to help farmers/landowners to do BMP projects on their land. Our primary goal is education of the public.
