Alachua County Forever - Four Creeks Preserve

Alachua County and the City of Gainesville recently took ownership of the Four Creeks Preserve, a 715-acre property that contributes to the flow of four separate creek systems. Rainfall on the undeveloped block of forestland situated between U.S. 441 and N.W. 43rd Avenue eventually finds its way into Turkey, Blues, Possum, and Hogtown creeks. Ownership by the City and County will help to ensure that these creeks continue to receive good quality water at their source. This video provides a brief look at the property and also explains the process for nominating lands for acquisition through the County Commission's Land Conservation Board.

For more information, call (352) 264-6868, or visit www.alachuacountyforever.us.
