A watershed is common ground and a healthy one is a common good. 

Stream survival depends on usMany voices joined to assure the lasting health and restoration of Richland Creek.

Did you know...You live, work and play in a watershed.

A watershed is a land area that drains wet weather to a single resource... streams, wetlands, groundwater and rivers. Watersheds create and nourish a web of natural resources.... air, soil, plants and wildlife.

Healthy streams sustain rivers and enhance communities. Streams in the Richland Creek watershed are endangered by things like runoff pollution, riparian loss, water withdrawal, impoundments and neglect. Our stewardship is crucial for the ecology connected to them.  Find out more!
