Protect, Connect, Restore… That is what we do here at West Creek Conservancy. West Creek Conservancy is a non-profit conservation organization that is dedicated to our mission - to enrich the lives of people in Greater Cleveland by conserving natural habitats, restoring the ecological value and sustainability of urban lands, and expanding neighborhood opportunities to experience nature. Since 1997, West Creek Conservancy has been connecting people to parks and protecting our drinking water. With your help, we can continue to protect our natural resources today and for future generations.

Up! A Creek… our major annual fundraiser will be held on Saturday, July 9, 2016 at the West Creek Reservation. This event brings together over 400 supporters for an evening of conservation celebration. Festivities begin at 5:00 pm with a VIP cocktail hour, followed by dinner, live entertainment, dancing, raffles/auctions, and more. We're excited to kick-off our 20th year protecting and restoring land here in Cleveland. We hope you'll join us for this celebration!
