Creekside Neighbors

Do you live by or along the Sparkill Creek? We are especially interested in connecting with our Creekside Neighbors.  We are developing special programs that would benefit from your participation based on your proximity to the Creek. Please join us at our monthly meetings.  

Website Funding and Development

This website was funded by a generous donation from Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc. Sparkill Creek Watershed Alliance is grateful for its support of our community. 

Higher Education Partners

The work of the Sparkill Creek is being furthered with science faculty from Dominican College and St. Thomas Aquinas College. By partnering with students of these nearby colleges, as well as from Rutgers, SCWA has the opportunity to share our developing information and practices with students who are interested to advance their studies in the context of the living environment, and community. This is all leading to growing citizen science and stream stewardship into future generations.
