Dear Friend:

Thank you for your support! Riparian restoration, wildlife conservation, and pollution control efforts are possible because of you.

Maggie represents the next generation of creek and watershed stewards.

Community support was the key to healthy
watersheds and clean waters in 2018.

The year’s accomplishments focused on re-establishing organizational capacity after our catastrophic office fire late last year. The need for protection and restoration for local creeks and the Granite Creek Watershed continued undaunted. Your backing was essential to collaboration with over 30 community partners to continue the important work of protecting nature and safeguarding our natural resources through education and advocacy.

Project highlights from the year include:

  • Cooperation with the City of Prescott to mitigate new sewer infrastructure built within Watson Woods Riparian Preserve. Along with two acres of native plantings to lessen the impact of the municipal construction, a third acre of cottonwood and willow live-pole cuttings were planted to further improve riparian habitat in the Preserve.
  • The Miller Creek Public Bathroom Project went from a concept to nearly-approved permits. (Permits are currently under review with the City.) Ground-breaking is expected early in the new year. This joint project with the Coalition for Compassion & Justice began with creek health and extends to community health. It directly addresses top priorities for both the environment and creek trail users.

In the coming year, we will finalize the Watson Woods Riparian Preserve – Restoration Phase III Plan. Funding is nearly secured to restore more wetlands and stream functions on the 126-acre area that was once a gravel pit! And, the lease agreement for the Preserve matures in July of 2020. Prescott Creeks and the City have already begun discussions about long-term protection for this local treasure.

Grants and contracts are not possible without community donations. They are essential “matching” funds for project development and on-the-ground work.
With your help we plan to secure at least $25,000 of the unfunded portion of projects in 2019. Won’t you invest in healthy creeks and watersheds?

Please consider a tax-deductible contribution to Prescott Creeks as you make year-end gifts. Donations can be made securely online or by one of the methods described below.
