Welcome to the Fish Creek Trail
Fish Creek provides habitat for many kinds of animals. One animal of special significance is the White Cat's Paw mussel. This clam is; Federally Endangered.
In 1993 a nearby pipeline ruptured, discharging diesel fuel into Fish Creek, Several miles of the creek were contaminated. The event resulted in a project to restore and protect the stream corridor, reduce erosion, recover mussel habitat, restore wetlands and provide educational opportunities. It is hoped that these efforts will help to conserve the natural resources of Fish Creek for future generations.
