Spa Creek Conservancy

Becoming a Good Creek Neighbor is Easy – Learn How

Spa Creek Conservancy, an all-volunteer organization dedicated to stewardship of the Spa Creek Watershed through restoration, mitigation, preservation and education, is looking for student volunteers to participate in environmental restoration projects and stormwater runoff best management such as: rain garden planting, bioswales, stream clean up, invasive species removal, stormwater planters, and maintenance of the features.

Whether you want to learn more about Spa Creek and its watershed ecology, do hands-on work to restore it, or help them in another capacity, the Spa Creek Conservancy has many opportunities to take positive action for the benefit of the Creek and the people and other living things within its watershed.

Over the next three years they will be executing over $7,000,000 in grants on more than 10 projects, including the restoration of the entire headwaters stem of the Creek. They are seeking volunteers to assist with a wide variety of ongoing restoration projects on Spa Creek at local schools, community street end parks, businesses, and churches. 

The best way to get involved is to become a junior member of the Spa Creek Conservancy, but you don't have to join to help out for a day, a week, a month, or on a specific project or committee.  There is no cost to join as a junior member.  They also encourage Girls Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Eagle Scouts to join them and earn project credits.

What goes into storm drains from roofs and driveways flows directly into Spa Creek–untreated–and ultimately ends up in the Chesapeake Bay.  Their goal is to help Spa Creek return to a fishable, swimmable, Chesapeake Bay tributary.

Become a volunteer of the Spa Creek Conservancy.   Training will be provided.
