Cooks Creek Watershed Association

The Cooks Creek Watershed Association (CCWA) was organized in 1974. In the 30 years since it's founding, CCWA has worked to further its goal: "To protect, preserve and improve the quality of water, land and life in the Cooks Creek Watershed."

In the 1990s the CCWA helped broker an agreement that involved the donation of a 64-acre tract of land to Heritage Conservancy. This innovative approach to resource protection was the first in a long line of conservation easements in the watershed. CCWA members have consistently supported the use of PA Act 319 agricultural easements that help conserve valuable agricultural lands. In 2000, the CCWA was instrumental in convincing Springfield Township residents to support an open space referendum that included a quarter percent ( ¼%) wage tax increase to buy easements protecting our valuable open spaces. Ongoing work in conjunction with other local conservation groups focus land preservation efforts in important headwater areas and other natural areas.
