We are the Beaver Creek Wetlands Association (BCWA)

We are folks just like you, with a variety of occupations, backgrounds and interests, with one thing in common ... a concern for our environment that drives us to become involved in preserving a most precious natural resource - right in our own backyard. We are members and volunteers, supporting the BCWA mission through our contributions, donations, contacts, ideas and energy.

We are a member supported organization committed to preserving the beautiful and unique wetlands located along the Big Beaver Creek and Little Beaver Creek through partnerships, community networks and public education.

We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) land trust governed by a volunteer, non-paid Board of Trustees. The Trustees are elected to three year terms by the membership at our annual public meeting held in May of each year.
