Sleepy Creek Watershed Association is a nonprofit, community organization working protect the Sleepy Creek watershed and to educate and assist community members to improve this irreplaceable natural resource for future generations.
We are involved in the community. We offer educational events about practical ways everyone can help take care of our local streams. We help farmers save top soil and prevent stream bank erosion by connecting them with funding and volunteers. We provide information to help homeowners tap into funding and volunteers for septic repairs or replacement, neighborhood tree plantings, and other “management practices” that reduce storm damage and keep our creeks clean.
We can come to a meeting of your Homeowners Association to tell you about our projects — and how you can help.
SCWA is governed by a volunteer board of directors, many of whom also are the project leaders for our stewardship, education and restoration projects. Although we do hire contractors for certain tasks, SWCA has no paid staff to do the day-to-day work of protecting and taking care of the Sleepy Creek Watershed. We rely on volunteers to help get things done and to play a leadership for our watershed.
We invite you join Sleepy Creek Watershed Association and help shape the future of the creek, its tributaries, and our community.
