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:  271.1325 tons of trash and 2,228+ tires.

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

The Association hosted a special nature/environmental education and fun event for all ages at Little Creek Park on Saturday, September 27th.

Presentations by Three Rivers Avian Center were a highlight of the day, with owls, hawks and a bald eagle. A stream ecology exhibit with native Davis Creek fish and crustaceans gave in interesting window into the underwater part of our watershed. There was a forestry exhibit and a herpetology exhibit with live reptiles and amphibians from Marshall University, and the water cycle became a fun game for children. There were door prizes, raffles for a kayak donated by Cabela's and a rain barrel with fittings from the WVDEP, and food was provided by Blues BBQ.
