Restoring the creeks that are a part of our City’s roots.

The restoration efforts at Reedy Creek are a part of Charlotte’s overall goal of protecting its vital waterways. Watch this excellent video that shows just how important these efforts are in Charlotte, also known as “The City of Creeks”.

UNC Charlotte, UNC Charlotte Urban Institute & UNC Charlotte College of Arts + Architecture have partnered with organizations and artists from across Mecklenburg County to raise awareness of creeks, watersheds, water quality, and the importance of protecting these vital waterways.
