Volunteers to ID Fish in Johns Creek

Group's goal is to create a photographic display of Johns Creek's native fishes.

This Saturday morning, July 14, a group of volunteers from Keep Johns Creek Beautiful, the North American Native Fishes Association (NANFA), and the Atlanta Area Aquarium Association will return to Johns Creek to continue with the identification and documentation of the various fishes found in our local waterway.  

The group's ultimate goal is to create a visual photographic display of Johns Creek’s native fishes that will have a permanent home at Autrey Mill Nature Preserve, and can be used for environmental education. 

Johns Creek, the waterway that is the namesake of the City of Johns Creek, is a tributary of the Chattahoochee River, and is home to numerous species of fishes native to the area. In April, volunteers cleaned up a one-mile stretch of the creek, removing more than 500 pounds of trash from the waterway.  

The group was joined by Michael Wolfe, a local representative from NANFA), who helped identify some of the fishes native to Johns Creek.  

Anyone interested in helping with this project should email Kathy Reed, executive director at Keep North Fulton Beautiful, at kathyreed@knfb.org.
