Event Details

Protect, Connect, Restore… That is what we do here at West Creek. West Creek 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 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.
