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.

OUR TRASH TALLY TO DATE:  290.90 tons of trash and 2,551+ tires.

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


Put on your boots, grab your raincoat (just in case) and join us for the annual Spring Davis Creek Watershed Cleanup on Saturday, April 21st. We will gather for coffee and doughnuts at 8:30 a.m. at W. Q. Watters Company’s office on Kanawha State Forest Drive at the Middle Fork/Berry Hills bridge. With support from our friends at the WVDEP and the City of South Charleston, we will provide gloves and trash bags. A delicious free lunch will be provided for all volunteers.
