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.
