WHO ARE WE?
Our members are mostly Davis Creek watershed residents. They include business owners, contractors, professionals, doctors, teachers, retirees, scientists, recreational visitors, students, and many more. The group was founded in 1995 by a group of local stakeholders who were concerned about the trash/illegal dumping and loss of stream habitat that were affecting their watershed. The group was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 1996.

NEWS FROM UPSTREAM:
FOLLOW UP ON KD#2 MINE
The mountaintop mines in the headwaters of Davis Creek near Kanawha State Forest have been permanently shut down. Reclamation has been conducted and site monitoring is ongoing.
The Davis Creek Watershed Association is monitoring water quality in the Forest and on the Davis Creek tributaries that drain the mine sites. Mine drainage has particularly high conductivity, which is detrimental to aquatic life downstream.
