Turkey Creek Residents Want To Preserve Wetlands

Turkey Creek Residents met Wednesday night in Gulfport to find out what the city has planned to help preserve their wetland areas.

The city of Gulfport is using funds from the Coastal Impact Assistant Program to buy land in Turkey Creek for conservation.

They plan to buy land in key areas to save the wetlands and help prevent future development.

The city sent out the first batch of letters to property owners owning land they would like to buy.

Although the city has asked for land to be donated for the cause, they will buy the land if need be.
