We are a grass roots conservation group that covers the Conewango Creek watershed. The Conewango Creek watershed is 900 suare miles or over 500,000 acres. 85% of the watershed is in New York State- 65% in Chautauqua County, and 20% in Cattaraugus County. The remaining 15% is in Warren County, PA. It flows south and enters into the Allegheny River in Warren and ulitmately goes to the Gulf Of Mexico.
Our number priority is edcuation of the public about the value of water, water quality and the local ecosystems. We strive to help poeple realize the value of our local water resource and the interconnctedness of the watershed and it's parts.
