Interested in Streambank Restoration?
Watch the video posted under the Education and Community Outreach tab to learn more about a local completed streambank restoration site and the positives that this site has brought to its community.
With special thanks to the members of the Washington County Watershed Alliance and the Upper Chartiers Creek Watershed Association, another successful Watershed Raffle has been completed.
On July 6, the lucky ticket holder was Gary White. Not only was Gary ecstatic about his win, but he was very complimentary about the event were he had purchased his raffle ticket from Destinee Davis. He said the Conservation District Streambank Restoration Site Tour and Dirt, Gravel and Low Volume Roads Workshop in California PA was just great, especially seeing what could be done to improve local streams and recreational areas.
Alliance member Kathy Voigt purchased tickets as gifts for the men in her family, and her son Dan’s ticket had the winning number on July 7. She purchased her tickets at a Buffalo Creek Watershed Association, were she is also a very active member. Both Dan and Gary received $200 Field and Stream Gift cards.
Just think if you would have purchased the ticket with the number 251, you could have been the big $500 Field and Stream package winner on July 5. That ticket was not sold.

The Washington County Watershed Alliance
The Washington County Watershed Alliance (WCWA) is a nonprofit conservation organization for the whole county, designed to enhance and coordinate the activities of individual watershed associations.
Curious about what a watershed is? Well, a watershed is an area of land that water flows across or under on its way to a stream, river, or lake. There are over two thousand watersheds in the continental United States. Everyone lives in a watershed as do animals, fish, birds, and insects. We all influence what happens in our watersheds by how we treat the natural resources contained within their boundaries.
