Since 1988, the Beaver Creek Wetlands Association has protected more than 2,300 acres of land along the Beaver Creek. These sites include delicate wetlands, full of unique plants and animals. The rare fens that occur in this region are fed by groundwater, the same groundwater that provides the primary source of drinking water to many residents of our area. One can also find marshes, streams, upland prairies, and forested wetlands within the Beaver Creek corridor.

BCWA's primary mission is to protect these natural areas, restoring them when needed. But another key tenant of our mission is education, and there's no better way to learn about nature than to be out in it. We want to increase public access to the beautiful, biodiverse wetlands of the Beaver Creek, and that lies at the core of this project.

With the help of our local and regional partners, and with the financial support of our dedicated membership and community, we are excited to begin the work of bringing this trail to life. We can't wait to see you out there!
