The headwaters of Davis Creek in Kanawha State Forest. 

The Davis Creek Watershed Association is a non-profit, all-volunteer group working to improve environmental quality in the Davis Creek watershed in Kanawha County, West Virginia. We are located near Charleston and South Charleston on the south side of the Kanawha River. 


The goal of the Davis Creek Watershed Association is to protect and improve the environmental quality of the Davis Creek watershed through community action, education and outreach, and cooperative efforts with landowners, businesses, and governmental agencies. 

Toward that goal, our volunteers conduct stream and roadside cleanups, remediation and reclamation of illegal dump sites, educational activities, work cooperatively with landowners to  promote good land stewardship and, when necessary, work with appropriate local and state governmental agencies on law enforcement matters. We have conducted water quality monitoring since 1996 and we currently participate in the West Virginia Save Our Streams program, and West Virginia Make It Shine cleanup program. 

OUR TRASH TALLY TO DATE:  307.98 tons of trash and 2,888+ tires. 

The Davis Creek Watershed Association is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. 


     Our 2023 spring cleanup was a great success! About 26 people participated in the effort, including four volunteers from Trash Your Kayak Crew of Coal River fame. 
      The weather gave us a good day and cleaner-uppers worked on the main stem of the creek, plus Middle Ridge, Trace Fork and Dry Branch. A number of abandoned shopping carts were found on Dry Branch.
     RESULTS:  2.4 tons of trash and 35 tires were removed from the landscape. 
     Many thanks to the City of South Charleston, the WV Dept. of Environmental Protection, W.Q. Watters Company and all our friends and neighbors.
