The Cliffs of Hurricane Creek

The cliffs of Hurricane creek are a rare and beautiful rock formation in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. When a high school biology class discovered the cliffs of Hurricane Creek were about to be destroyed to make way for a new bypass, they made a movie to save the cliffs. Their movie shows the people of their community what a rare a beautiful place the cliffs are - and how moving the bypass 1800 feet would save the cliffs for future generations. This movie is a good example of how classroom video can help students learn biology, civics, botany, geology and history all in the process of making one movie.

Produced by students from Tuscaloosa County High School, Tuscaloosa, Alabama, in conjunction with Sierra Club.
