Our Mission: The Battle Creek Watershed Conservancy's goal is to preserve the environmental and economic resources of the Battle Creek watershed through responsible stewardship, liaison, cooperation, and education.
The BCWC is a voluntary organization of property owners with significant stakes in the economic and environmental health of the Battle Creek watershed. It was formed to help protect these economic and environmental stakes through local control and beneficial land stewardship practices.
We welcome you to browse our site to learn about projects and studies being conducted within the Battle Creek watershed, including the Battle Creek Salmon & Steelhead Restoration Project and the completed Battle Creek Watershed Assessment. We also offer links to many other documents and reports pertaining to the Upper Sacramento River watershed.
