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:  302.06 tons of trash and 2,731+ tires. 

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


The annual gathering for our spring watershed cleanup was cancelled due to health concerns related to the  coronavirus pandemic. But, our determined volunteers succeeded in doing some serious cleanup anyway.  

We provided bags, gloves and disposal of all trash collected to neighbors who wanted to clean up in their areas. At least 14 people did an outstanding job of collecting 72 bags of trash, 2 tires and assorted metals pieces, plus a full 55-gallon bag of aluminum cans for recycling. 

TEAM DAVIS CREEK does it again!
