Join us in mulching all of the plants that have gone in during our Watershed Wide Event. Last year with your help we were able to mulch over 1000 plants! Mulch helps the soil around the plant retain more moisture throughout the summer helping them survive the heat!

Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote restoration and stewardship of a healthy Johnson Creek Watershed through sound science and community engagement.


The Johnson Creek Watershed Council was formed in 1994 to fill the need for a single organization which could have the entire watershed as its focus. The JCWC provides an important opportunity for community members to participate in enhancing the resource that flows through their neighborhoods and communities. In 2001, the Council became a 501(c)3 non-profit.
