Mission Statement

The Tryon Creek Watershed Council restores, protects and enhances the ecological health and function of our unique urban watershed.

Description

The majority of TCWC projects involve restoration of riparian native vegetation on streambanks. We focus these projects on private properties along key wildlife corridors, neighboring green-spaces, and adjacent to existing restoration sites. We also fix fish passage barriers by contracting replacement with a bridge (such as the case with the Stone Bridge Project on Nettle Creek) or working as an advocate (in the case of Boones Ferry Culvert and the Highway 43 Culvert projects). As a watershed council, another key role that we fill is coordination of partnerships, watershed planning, and monitoring.
