The sunset cruise on board the Bama Belle is a public event to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Hurricane Creekkeeper – the Friends of Hurricane Creek’s environmental enforcement program led by John Wathen.
“John Wathen is a world-famous defender of water,” said Charles Scribner, Executive Director of Black Warrior Riverkeeper. “Alabama is blessed to have John as its Hurricane Creekkeeper, and Black Warrior Riverkeeper is grateful to have the Friends of Hurricane Creek as a partner.”
“It has been our honor and pleasure to be associated with such a powerful family of water advocates as Waterkeeper Alliance,” Wathen added.
Proceeds from the event will support both Waterkeeper Alliance organizations’ work to promote swimmable, fishable, and drinkable water. Hurricane Creek is a major tributary of the Black Warrior River in Tuscaloosa County.
Admission includes dinner catered by The Levee, and a complimentary sampling of local beers by Druid City Brewing. The local band the NoJoes will provide music during the cruise. Boarding begins at 6 p.m., and the boat leaves at 6:30 p.m. This event is for ages 21 and up. Guests under 21 can attend with a parent or guardian, but will need a ticket – as space is limited. Tickets are on sale for $40 per person at bamabelle2018.eventbrite.com.
