"See Your Feets
The Clear Creeks Project is a grant-funded, citizen-based initiative that helps answer a community desire to restore the water quality of the rivers and creeks throughout the Bird River, Middle River, and Tidal Gunpowder watersheds.
As Wilson Point resident Dan Doerfer explains, “My hope is that one day soon, I’ll be swimming with my grandchildren, and we’ll be able to see our feet below us. What if the water was that clear again? Working together, I believe we can make that happen.” Doerfer serves on the board of the Wilson Point Civic Community Association, one of numerous local organizations and citizen groups partnering with the project’s leading agency, the Gunpowder Valley Conservancy (GVC).
Through educational outreach and hands-on efforts, the GVC and its community partners will assist residents in creek clean-ups, tree plantings, and yard and garden practices all designed to proudly maintain the health and heritage of our treasured Chesapeake waterways.
