A Fowl River Watershed Management Plan was completed in 2016. One of the priorities identified in the Plan is the preservation of sits and marshes along the river.

The Mobile Bay National Estuary Program is holding a public meeting to share results from a year-long Fowl River Marsh Health and Recovery Study.

The purpose of this study was to identify factors causing the degradation of marsh covered spits in the brackish zone of Fowl River. Study results will inform future habitat restoration efforts in Fowl River.
