It’s sad how much trash ends up in our waterways, but it’s a truly joyful experience to join the Friends of Hurricane Creek for a day to help get it cleaned up! This annual event is one of the traditions that has brought different people together for many years, based on their love for the creek. There are often options to travel the creek areas by boat or on foot; details will follow as the date approaches, but this event is a classic part of what Flow Tuscaloosa is all about. 

Tuscaloosa Riverwalk, Parker-Hahn Park

Our final Flow Tuscaloosa event will be a walking lantern parade starting at Parker-Hahn Park on the Riverwalk. Gather as early as 5pm to prepare your lantern and learn about our local waterways. As sunset approaches (~7:25pm), explore lighting effects and artwork along the Riverwalk trails. We will begin a walking lantern parade procession just before sunset, and conclude with final remarks at Parker-Haun Park. Information tables from sponsors and partners will be present for public exploration. Bring your lantern from workshops, or build your own design! Some USB-powered lights will be available (no flame/candle lanterns permitted).

Hurricane Creek Park (P.A.R.A.), Hwy 216

Rescheduled for Sat. May 11 – We hope you’ll join us to hang your lantern, meet Hurricane Creek Creekkeeper John Wathen, and learn more about the history and ecology of the creek.
