The Beaver Creek Wetlands Association (BCWA) is a group of folks who, just like you, who believe that safe water and the environment needed to protect it are essential to a healthy and satisfying life in our communities. Even more, we believe we have a rare opportunity to maintain a close and friendly relationship with our wetlands by protecting this unique wetland ecosystem and its aquifer below.

Over the years, 90 percent of Ohio's wetlands have been lost. Here in Greene County, citizens have defended the area of the Beaver Creek against this trend. But the pressures are mounting from rapid growth and development in the area.

Executive Director Announcement

The Beaver Creek Wetlands Association (BCWA) is delighted to announce the hiring of a new Executive Director, Blythe Hazellief. Blythe has a passionate commitment to conservation in general and the Beaver Creek Wetlands in particular. This love for nature was greatly enhanced by a master's degree in biology that she completed at Wright State University in 2015. For her graduate research Blythe studied the effects of agricultural land use on stream fish communities in Ohio. She also earned a master's degree in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin in 2007, and taught college math for several years before she decided to pursue a career in conservation. Blythe enjoys hiking, birding, and walking the trails of the Beaver Creek Wetlands with her husband Ben and five-year old daughter Riley.

As Executive Director, Blythe will lead BCWA's efforts to protect, manage, and educate the public about some 2,200 acres of protected lands along the corridors of Beaver and Little Beaver Creeks in Greene County. High on the priority list will be engaging with all of BCWA's partners, board, volunteers, and members to increase awareness of the wetlands, and boost the public profile and conservation efforts of BCWA. When asked what she is most looking forward to about the new position Blythe said "BCWA is an organization that I have admired for many years. The wetlands along the Beaver Creek are some of the most beautiful and important natural areas in our region, and I am excited for the opportunity to lead this organization in their conservation."
